Including everyone from retired Joint
Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell to former
President Carter, the list of University
presidential candidates displays a
diverse representation of people.
Of the 302
candidates I t eas
selected by the
S e a r ch
many were not J
aware they had University dea
ed for the job.
Donald Kennedy, president emeritus
of Stanford University, said he was sur-
prised to learn that his name was on the
"I think somebody might have
*ught they were doing a favor for me,
but wild horses couldn't drive me away
from Stanford," Kennedy said.
James Richards, dean of Pharmacy at
the University, had a similar reaction,
although he knew of his nomination.
"I am surprised that my name was
submitted. I had no aspiration of being
president of the University," Richards

None of the four finalists chosen by
PSAC yesterday are currently employed
by the University.
Former U.S. President Gerald Ford, a
Michigan alum, and Johnetta Cole, last
year's commencement speaker, were
also on the list.
PSAC's list con-
tained a great
number of quali-

"Obviously the president has to show
strong leadership for a truly distin-
guished faculty, but I also think that
they need to be able to deal skillfully
with the Board of Regents and avoid
the problems of the past," Kennedy
Out of the 302 presidential candi-
dates, 291 were nominated by others or
actively recruited by PSAC. Only I1
nominated themselves. PSAC looked
through recommendations, resumes,
letters and speeches, and eventually
held private interviews with potential
Jeffrey Lehman, Law School dean
and PSAC chair, said the selection
process was harder than he anticipated.
"The relevant pool is small to begin
with. It consists exclusively of people
who are happy and succeeding in their
current positions," Lehman said.
"The most time-consuming work in a
search process is not the decision. The
only real decision in the process comes
in the end of a lengthy process of iden-
tification and recruitment;" he said.
Many of the candidates were not
upset to learn they were not selected as
"I felt I was not the candidate they
were looking for, so I was not sur-
prised," Steneck said.

of Pharmacy . "1 think that it
is pretty cool that
they considered a
lot of high-profile individuals to be pos-
sible candidates. I don't know how real-
istic the University's chances were to
get Colin Powell, but at least they tried,"
Many of the candidates said that the
next president must possess strong
qualities to represent the University.
"I think the candidates came from
major administrative positions and they
were highly qualified," said Nicholas
Steneck, professor and director of
Inteflex, who was also on the list.
Kennedy agreed with Steneck, but
Walter Harrison, vice president of
University relations, felt the same way.
"I know the finalists are a spectacular
group of people and I am not in their
league," Harrison said.
But many still said they felt honored
just to be considered for the presidency.
"I am flattered at the thought and I
appreciate it," Harrison said.
Daniel Atkins, School of Information
dean, said he is content working on the
new program in his school.
"It is rarer to create a new school than
it is to be the president," Atkins said. "I
am honored, but I'm happy about what
I am doing now."
