(Harrisburg) -- The board of the State System of Higher Education is scheduling a special meeting Wednesday to select the fourth-ever chancellor.
System officials made the announcement today.
The board is keeping the names of the three finalists for the highest-paid post in Pennsylvania state government a secret for the first time in the system's 31 years. Most trustees are appointed by the governor, and Governor Corbett's higher education adviser, Ronald Tomalis, is apparently finalist.
Pennsylvania's state system, with about 115,000 students, is the nation's 13th largest public university system. The system's first three chancellors all had a background in university administration and a doctoral degree.
Tomalis has held top-level positions in both the federal and state Departments of Education for much of the last 18 years.
