CSU Pueblo President

The search is on for a new president to lead Colorado State University-Pueblo.

School officials say they hope to have a replacement by July 1 for outgoing president Ronald Applbaum.

In addition to traditional job advertisements that started circulating Sunday, the school has hired Alberto Pimentel as a consultant to track down qualified candidates.

Pimentel will hold a second round of public forums at the end of March to gather more input about what kind of characteristics the community wants in a new president.

Search committee chairwoman Diane Evans says they'll consider traditional as well as nontraditional applicants.
