In New Mexico, the search for a university president has gone bust.
A search for the next leader of New Mexico State University has been called off because the university couldn't come up with five finalists on the right timeline.
Part of the problem: A common complaint among university folks who run these searches - a requirement that the names of finalists be made public. The law on this varies from state to state; North Carolina, for example, doesn't require that finalists be made public and universities here rarely do so.
According to the press report, some of the finalists for the New Mexico State job were scared off when they learned their identities might become publicly known.
