The search for a new university president has been narrowed down to three finalists to be announced on Monday.

In a university-wide email sent on Tuesday, Chairman of the Presidential Search Committee Mark Sullivan announced that the committee has found three candidates that they feel can take on the responsibility.

According to this message, the three finalists are set to individually visit the Suffolk campus next week.

The Boston Globe reported Wednesday that Martin T. Meehan, current chancellor of the University of Massachusetts Lowell, is rumored to be named as a finalist for the position at Suffolk. University officials declined to confirm if that is true.

University spokesman Greg Gatlin declined to comment on the presidential search process, and Andrew Meyer, chairman of the Board of Trustees and part of the search committee, could not immediately be reached.

The committee has promised that the Suffolk community will have the opportunity to comment and provide feedback on each candidate following their visits.
