(Millersville) -- A Lancaster County college is one step closer to choosing its next president.

The Board of Governors of the State System of Higher Education has met with three candidates for the top job at the Millersville University.

They are John Anderson, president of Alfred State College in New York; Kent Neely, provost and vice president of academic affairs at Western Oregon University; and Vilas Prabhu, the current Millserville provost.

University spokeswoman Janet Kacskos says the trio has been recommended by the board of trustees after a diverse committee began the search.

"There were students, faculty, staff, alumni, businesspeople, trustees, it was a good mix," Kacskos says.

She says the state system governors could choose a president to replace the outgoing Francine McNairy this week.

Additionally, York College of Pennsylvania is in the midst of a search for a new president, and other midstate schools have appointed new leaders recently.

Lebanon Valley College in Lebanon County welcomed its new president in August.

HACC, Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, and Wilson College in Chambersburg hired new presidents last year.
