The University of Minnesota provost search is down to four candidates, reports the Minnesota Daily.
All eyes are on University President Eric Kaler, who will make what the Star Tribune calls "his most important hire."
Two of the three already announced candidates are from within the University, with the other from Washington University in St. Louis, reported the Star Tribune.
Tim Mulcahy, chairman of the provost search committee, said he's excited about the academic diversity of the candidates.
The four candidates were selected out of a pool of 300 candidates, 50 or 60 of which agreed to participate, reported the Star Tribune.
The final candidate will be announced Monday.
