“Angelo State is an evolving university, and we are determined to find the best leader who will continue the institution’s tradition of excellence and vision for the future.”
It essentially exists of two Carr Foundation Trustees (one of which is chairing the Search Committee), two area executives (one of which doubles as San Angelo's Mayor) and two ASU faculty leaders (one formal, the other informal).
Dr. Rallo and new Carr Trustees changed nearly everything about Carr, despite assertions to the contrary in 2007. An evolving foundation needs a new ASU President to drive policy.
The final selection will be made by the chancellor, who will seek confirmation of his choice by the Board of Regents.Early reports had Rallo working to find his replacement. That fact didn't make this press release. Also, there was no mention of the consulting firm assisting with the search.
Dr. Rallo will concentrate on veterans’ issues, distance learning and international programs at TTU, as well as provide the face for academic affairs system-wide.
