The committee searching for the University of Nevada's next president has narrowed its list down to six semi-finalists.
The only one from Nevada is Desert Research Institute President Stephen Wells.
Others are Jack Burns, formerly of the University of Colorado system.
William Flores of New Mexico State University.
Milton Glick of Arizona State University.
Ira Schwartz of Temple University.
And Marlene Strathe of Oklahoma State University.
The semifinalists are scheduled to be interviewed next week by the regents' search committee, which then will narrow the list to three finalists.
The name of a final candidate will be submitted later this month to the Board of Regents for a vote at a special May fifth meeting.
