Interim chancellor named sole finalist at CU

April 21, 2009

Citing a need for continuity during budget challenges, Bruce Benson, president of the University of Colorado system, announced Monday that Philip P. DiStefano is the sole finalist for the chancellor's job at the system's Boulder campus.

Benson said the decision to search internally allowed the university to tap into talent on the campus and provide continuity as the university works on tight budgets, a national reaccreditation process, and a strategic plan.

A final decision on the CU chancellor's position will be made before May 8.
