Old Dominion University’s Board of Visitors suspended its search for a new president after one of the committee’s finalists withdrew from the race.
Deborah Stanley, the president of State University of New York—Oswego, notified the public of her decision to withdraw from the process on the school’s website early Friday. She plans to continue to work with schools in the New York area.
No plans have been made to resume the search for the university’s next leader, but the next ODU Board of Visitors meeting is scheduled for Sept. 19.
Old Dominion began searching for a new president after Roseann Runte announced her acceptance of a similar post at Carleton University in Canada.
