Southern Illinois University is expected to name a new President Monday.

The new President will take over for Glenn Poshard, who announced last year that he will retire this summer.

The Board confirmed on Thursday that five finalists had been forwarded from the Presidential Search Advisory Committee, and at least some of those finalists were interviewed last week.

Monday's meeting is set for 2:00pm on the SIU Edwardsville campus.
