Officials with Quincy University say they are well on their way to selecting a new president.

According to QU Presidential Search Committee chairman Mike McClain, nearly 70 applicants submitted information by the September 5th deadline.

The committee put together a slate of semi-finalists in September. They are scheduled to be interviewed by the search committee next week.

The current timeline calls for Quincy University’s 24th President to be appointed by the Board of Trustees before Christmas.
