BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) – Western Kentucky University’s Board of Regents has targeted an official from the University of Kansas to become the university’s next president.
The board said in a statement Wednesday that University of Kansas Vice Chancellor for Public Affairs Timothy Caboni is its “preferred candidate” for the job.
Caboni, a Western Kentucky alumnus, has been invited to visit campus on Jan. 25 and Jan. 26 to attend campus forums. The board will consider extending a formal offer to Caboni at its quarterly meeting on Jan. 27.
