BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -

Western Kentucky University's Board of Regents has formed a committee to find a new president.
    
Current President Gary Ransdell announced recently that he will retire from the position in June 2017.
    
According to a news release from the school, the search committee will identify a pool of qualified and diverse candidates and recommend between three and five. The full board will then select the president.
    
Board Chair Freddie Higdon said the goal is to name WKU's 10th president by March 2017.
    
Regent Phillip Bale will serve as search committee chairman. In a statement, he pledged to conduct the search with as much clarity as possible without compromising the confidentiality of the process.
