HOUGHTON, Mich. — The search for a new president at Michigan Technological University is down to four candidates.

The Daily Mining Gazette reports that the finalists are from outside the Upper Peninsula university. They’ll next be interviewed by Michigan Tech’s governing board. No names have been released.

Search committee chairman Bill Johnson said Friday it’s a “fine field” with “wonderful track records.”

Glenn Mroz has been president since 2004. He plans to return to the faculty in summer.

Michigan Tech has 7,200 students in Houghton, including 5,800 undergraduates.
