Board to vote Tuesday on Kennesaw State presidential finalist

Pamela Whitten could be president of Kennesaw State University as soon as Tuesday.

The Georgia Board of Regents has scheduled a meeting Tuesday morning to vote on whether to make Whitten, the University of Georgia’s provost, KSU’s president.

The board announced last Tuesday that Whitten is the finalist for the KSU position. Veteran KSU faculty member and administrator Ken Harmon has been KSU’s interim president since February, when former Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens resigned from the position after 16 months on the job.

Whitten visited KSU’s Kennesaw and Marietta campuses on Friday to answer questions from faculty, students and staff about her qualifications and vision for the 35,000-student university.
