UL Board set to interview Guice on Tuesday

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Louisiana Tech University may find out who its next president is going to be Tuesday.

Les Guice, executive vice president and vice president for research and development at Louisiana Tech, was named the one remaining finalist by the search committee Thursday. The committee will recommend Guice be named the university's newest leader to the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors.

The News-Star reported Guice will be interviewed by the UL System board Tuesday in Baton Rouge.

The board may choose to name the university's new president that day.

If approved, Guice will replace Dan Reneau, who announced in September he will retire as the university's 13th president at the end of June after 26 years in the position.
