(Harrisburg) -- It used to be that the names of the finalists for the highest-paid job in Pennsylvania state government -- chancellor of the State System of Higher Education -- were made public.
In the coming days, the board of the 14-university school system is expected to announce its pick for the next chancellor after keeping the names of three finalists a secret. Such secrecy is said to be an emerging trend in higher education to protect would-be candidates. In January, the state system's board met and voted unanimously to make the entire search process confidential.
One of the board members voting for that policy was Governor Corbett's then-secretary of education, Ron Tomalis. Tomalis is now apparently one of the three finalists. The last chancellor's salary was $327,500.
