    • Dr. Kenneth Kaushansky. He is presently the Stony Brook University senior vice president of health sciences and School of Medicine dean. The Stony Brook Medicine network encompasses six schools, two hospitals, a children’s hospital and clinics.

    Only one with experience as a president (His biggest accomplishment regarding athletics, dropping Idaho to FCS). Bet they pick Brenner, because of his Health and Sciences experience.

    I could see them going a different route, because Dr. Roth already has our HSC campus doing well. He's like a co-UNM President since HSC is in their own world and doesn't always roll up to UNM President.

    3 out of 5 have health science background- no matter who they choose, it's another message from susann to Roth & arguably political influence in another key university personnel decision making process, for better or worse

    I am faculty and am just hoping that this time the regents listen to faculty. We've lobbied hard to them to do it. The regents have not listened to faculty in at least the past two searches and look how that has turned out for UNM... One of my main concerns is that the person chosen has experience at a Research 1 institution and at an institution that has a medical school (or vet school), like UNM. Being in the R1 category of highest research activity and having a medical school makes us completely different from institutions that are not and do not. It requires a fundamentally different understanding of required infrastructure and procedures.

    A couple of statements made in the previous posts are factually inaccurate. HSC is not in its own world. We share an accounting and HR system and the upper administration work in concert with each other. There is also no message from the Governor to Dr. Roth, albeit the regents are over-politicized. The search committee is quite large and likely dilutes any political influence from Doughty, at this stage, at least. We'll see what happens when the actually selection is made. I can only hope they listen to the faculty this time.

    So just what is the faculty trying to say?

    When you say they share an Accounting and HR system are you just referring to Banner? Because HSC and Main campus both have their own business offices that are separate. Remember how the ABQ Journal wrote an article about the divide between Main campus and HSC? Then we never heard about it in the paper again. I'm not saying they are in a battle with each other or anything. I'm merely saying they are two different operations.

    I notice two of the candidates are women. Has there been a president of UNM who was female? Seems to me, no... Dr. Morrobel-Sosa would be in interesting pick.

    As much as I'd like to know we'll hire a president that will be supportive/good for our athletic department, in the big picture the most important thing is getting the candidate that will be best for the university as a whole. While I lack much knowledge in this process, its hard not to think that hiring someone who can best support UNM as a Research 1 institution is highly important (as stated by BFink above).

    Yes, agreed but it is much more than just a research institution. Its first goal is educating at both the undergraduate and graduate/professional level. It also happens to be the largest employer in Albuq. and a major driver of the economy and it can/should do so much more (as it is attempting with the partnership with the city in Innovate Abq. and the UNM Science & Tech Park. It also is a major research institution in many fields (not just health sciences although they are a big & shinning part of the research that goes on). UNM also provides a major component of the hospital and clinic care for NM. Up until recently, Health Sciences operated to a large extent independently of the rest of the university and their desire to build new hospital facilities without first "kissing the Susanna ring" has brought a major shift in that "independence." I'm not educated on the topic well enough to know if t hat is a good or bad thing for the state but it is a "thing" and if anyone doubts that it is playing a part in what is happening now that Susanna' Regents are in charge, they are being a bit naive - it is a part of the presidential selection process.

    Additionally UNM provides the region with a huge component of its cultural and entertainment activities, including all that happens at Popejoy, athletics, lecture series, and on campus museums as well as adult education.

    Lol this is why some people don't want to live and work in New Mexico anymore. Candidates work hard and build up impressive resumes and then New Mexicans just look over their body of work and dismiss it as boring and meh. Candidates don't need to be sexy they need to be hard working with integrity and a vision to help UNM continue into the future to help as many New Mexicans and others who come to Albuquerque, New Mexico.
