Ball State starts search for new president

MUNCIE, Ind. – Ball State University’s trustees have hired an executive search firm for $150,000 to help them find a replacement for outgoing school President Jo Ann Gora.

Gora announced in October that she planned to retire next June after 10 years leading the 18,000-student university in Muncie.

Ball State trustees president Hollis Hughes tells The Star Press (http://tspne.ws/18WmHrb) the board is looking for someone who can build on Gora’s success and keep the school’s momentum going.

The president of Georgia-based search firm Baker and Associates conducted the search that led to Gora’s hiring in 2004.

Ball State trustees have also named a 16-member search committee, which will be led by trustee Wayne Estopinal of Jeffersonville. That committee will hold its first meeting Jan. 10.
