Flaherty; Bridgeport resident David Alvarez of Energy Transportation LLC; and Charleston resident Drew Payne, of Horse Creek Land and Mining Co., Spruce Boone Land Co. and Boone Coal and Timber Co., all have terms expiring in June. Robert Griffith, faculty representative on the board, also has a term expiring this year.
All four are eligible for re-appointment to the board.
"Of course we had seriously hoped to have the actual presidential search well underway and be in the position to hire a new president or have finalists selected down to two or three people before anyone's terms would end in June," Dailey said.
Faculty members of the presidential search committee, besides Griffith, are Carolyn Atkins, professor of speech pathology, and Matt Valenti, professor of electrical engineering.
The committee also includes classified staff members Lisa Martin, Dixie Martinelli and Paul Martinelli, and student government members Colleen Beatty, Liz Gulick and Paul Garton.
Elizabeth Dooley, associate provost for undergraduate academic affairs, and Robert Jones, dean of the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences, will represent the administration on the search committee, with John Fahey, vice president of United Bank Inc., and Jack Rossi, of Arnett Foster Toothman PLLC, representing the WVU Alumni Association.
Carolyn Long, campus executive officer for WVU Tech, will also serve on the search committee, along with Cynthia Roth and Susan Brewer from the WVU Foundation.
Last month, the board outlined qualities and characteristics for the next WVU president, saying candidates should show integrity and leadership, in addition to having experience in managing a complex research university with a medical center.
