BOCA RATON - The field of candidates for president of Florida Atlantic University narrowed again Monday after one finalist withdrew his name from consideration.
The announcement means that FAU trustees will consider only Lt. Gov. Frank Brogan and Thomas Hanley, engineering dean at the University of Louisville, for the job.
Stanley Fish, liberal arts and sciences dean at the University of Illinois at Chicago, cited personal reasons for his decision to withdraw his application.
FAU Trustee chairman George Zoley applauded Fish's "extensive academic and professional experience." In a statement, he said he was disappointed by the decision.
After two days of interviews this week with Brogan and Hanley, trustees are scheduled to select their next president on Friday.
FAU began its search for a new leader last year after Anthony Catanese resigned July 1 to become president of Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne.
