Statement from EKU Board of Regents Chair Regarding Benson’s Possible New Opportunity:
The College of Charleston announced Thursday that Dr. Michael T. Benson has been named as a finalist in their presidential search. Change is inevitable, and when you have a dynamic and visionary leader, it comes as no surprise that Dr. Benson’s talents are sought at other institutions of higher education. While we await the decision of the Board of Trustees at the College of Charleston in the coming weeks, I can assure you EKU remains committed to student success, our strategic plan, and the campus revitalization. As any further announcements are made, the Board will fully consider any necessary steps at the appropriate time.
Chair, EKU Board of Regents
