The next phase in the search for a new president of Luther College will happen next week with off-campus conversations between each of the two finalists and four campus groups (the Cabinet and representatives of the faculty, staff and student body).

Last April, the college announced it would be seeking additional candidates for consideration after the single candidate for the position withdrew his candidacy for the position last March.

President Richard Torgerson's term of service to the college ended June 30. David Tiede has been serving as interim president of the college since July 1.
