EKU President May Get Extension

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - The interim president at Eastern Kentucky
University may be getting a contract extension.
The university's Board of Regents is scheduled to meet Monday
morning, and it's expected to discuss starting a presidential
search or keeping Doug Whitlock, the interim president, on the job
for a longer time.
"The board has been inundated with positive comments in support
of President Whitlock's leadership," EKU Board Chairman Hunter
Bates said.
Whitlock, 64, a former university administrator, was appointed
to the job on an interim basis in August. He replaced Joanne
Glasser, who left to accept the job as president of Bradley
University in Peoria, Ill.
Whitlock was vice president for administrative affairs from 1998
until he retired in 2003 and continued to teach computer science
classes part time until 2006.
From 1976 to 1998, Whitlock was executive assistant to the
president. He had previously been director of publications and
director of public information and taught in the Department of Mass
Communications.
His current contract runs through July 2008 and pays him
$250,000 annually.
