Following a national search and an intensive screening process, the committee is expected to recommend no fewer than five candidates as finalists for consideration by the UW System President and a special Board of Regents committee, chaired by Regent Gerald Whitburn of Wausau. Other members of the committee include Regent Vice President Regina Millner (Madison), Regent Margaret Farrow (Pewaukee), and Regent José Vásquez (Wauwatosa).


After a series of public presentations and personal interviews, the UW System president and the Regent committee will recommend one individual to the full board, which must approve the appointment.


The campus search committee will convene for the first time at 1 p.m. Monday, March 31, at UW-Oshkosh. At that meeting, Cross will officially charge the committee with its mission, review procedures and begin the national search.
