The Cal Poly presidential search continues with three new presidential candidates who will visit campus Nov. 30 through Dec. 2.

The names of the candidates will not be released until today because of a request by the Chancellor’s Office.

Phil Bailey, the dean of the College of Science and Mathematics and the administrative representative on the Presidential Search Advisory Committee, said absolutely no information about the candidates can be released until the announcement at 10 a.m.

“I can’t tell … anything about the candidates, even how many candidates there are, how many we interviewed in Los Angeles or how many are coming to campus,” Bailey said.

Though the candidates were confidential at press time, the students, faculty and community will be able to address the candidates in open forums throughout the week. From 10 to 10:40 a.m., the candidates will be available to the students in the University Union, room 220.  The faculty and staff forum will be from 2:10 p.m. to 2:50 p.m. in Alex G. Spanos Theatre. The forum for the university and community’s forum will be held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the Advanced Technology Laboratories, followed by a reception in the Advanced Technology Lobby from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

A more detailed schedule will be released today along with the names of the candidates.

Sarah Storelli, Associated Students Inc. president and student representative on the Presidential Search Advisory Committee, said she is excited for the president candidates’ visit.

“I am excited to announce that there are three qualified and stellar individuals who will be coming to campus this week,” Storelli said. “I am excited for each of them to interact with the campus on various levels and specifically, for the presidential candidate student forums.”
