YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A university in Ohio has taken some interest in Murray State University President Randy Dunn.

Dunn is among eight semi-finalists for the presidency at Youngstown State University according to The Vindicator Newspaper.

A 17-member search committee plans to conduct semi-finalists interviews April 12 and 13.  Of the eight, five finalists will emerge.

Finalists will visit the campus in late April.  The Board of Trustees at Youngstown plan to choose the next president by June.

If trustees offer Dunn the job and he accepts, he will be the eighth president of Youngstown State University.  He would replace Cynthia Anderson.  She became president in 2010 and will retire July 1.

In March, the Murray State Board of Regents voted not to renew President Dunn's contract.  He has applied for several other university president positions in the past.
