PCC's Brown not a finalist for Arkansas college job
Portland Community Colleges Jeremy Brown is not one of the finalists for the chancellors job at Arkansas State University Mid-South campus.
Arkansas State University System officials said the list of more than five dozen hopefuls for the job was whittled to four finalists on Tuesday, May 5. The university hopes to hire a new chancellor by July 1.
The Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported April 20 that Brown was among 54 candidates for the chancellors job in West Memphis. The newspaper sought the candidates names in a public records request.
News reports about Browns application for the job may have prompted two executive sessions (closed to the public) by the PCC board of directors on April 24 and again April 29. The boards closed meetings focused on talks with the colleges attorneys.
PCC officials have not discussed Browns position or his future with the school.
Brown became PCCs sixth president on July 1, 2013. Before that, Brown was president of Dowling College on Long Island and of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.
