EMPORIA, Kansas (AP) – Two candidates for the Emporia State University presidency are scheduled to visit its eastern Kansas campus next week.

The presidential search committee announced the visits Tuesday but declined to name the finalists, saying they’ll be disclosed the day before they arrive.

The first candidate will visit Oct. 6 and 7. The other will visit Oct. 8 and 9.

The state Board of Regents will interview the candidates after their visits and make the final selection. The new president is expected to take office in January 2016.

Michael Shonrock stepped down as president in April to become president at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri.

The regents in May named retired Butler County Community College President Jacqueline Vietti interim president.
