The Texas A&M Board of Regents named current-interim President Gen. Mark A. Welsh III the sole finalist for university president during a Friday, Nov. 17 meeting.

The regents unanimously agreed on Welsh as the finalist.

Earlier this week on Monday, A&M system Chancellor John Sharp told the Faculty Senate Executive Committee that he would be recommending Welsh to the regents for the presidency, according to a Nov. 13 press release.

Now that the board has accepted Sharp’s recommendation, faculty and students will have 21 days to give feedback and input before officially naming Welsh president.

“Like many of you, I am pleased with the direction of Texas A&M under Gen. Welsh’s leadership,” Sharp said in the Nov. 13 statement. “He is moving decisively to advance the university’s mission, and he is doing it while ensuring that faculty, staff and others are properly informed and included. I want to again encourage the Faculty Senate to gather and share faculty perspectives about General Welsh at this critical time.”

As the countdown for the waiting period begins, Sharp said this will help with academic and administrative hiring decisions, along with restoring momentum for other university initiatives.
