OU Regents to meet to discuss president opening

The University of Oklahoma Regents will meet this week to discuss how to go about replacing President James Gallogly.

The OU Regents called for a special meeting on Thursday at 8:15 p.m. at the Robert M. Byrd Library on the campus of the Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center to discuss and consider possible successors, either permanent or interim, for OU President James Gallogly. The regents might also just decide on a process for the selection of a permanent replacement.

Gallogly, 66, announced on Sunday that he planned to retire once a process for his succession had been established. Gallogly took over as OU's 14th President on July 1, 2018.

Such action may be made on an acting or interim basis, or a process may be set forth regarding a permanent selection.

The 8:15 p.m. meeting time was the earliest the regents were able to meet due to conflicting schedules and travel.
