Dr. Larry Minks will continue to serve as Southeastern's interim president through June 30, 2010.

The board of regents of the Regional University System of Oklahoma (RUSO) voted on July 31 to retain Dr. Larry Minks as interim president of Southeastern Oklahoma State University until June 30, 2010. Minks has been serving as interim president since July 1 of this year.

At the RUSO board’s January 2010 meeting, the regents will formally announce the opening of the permanent position, which will include an application process, according to RUSO executive director Sheridan McCaffree. It is the board’s intent to fill the permanent position on July 1, 2010, McCaffree said.

“I truly appreciate the support and confidence of our board of regents,” Minks said. “We have a dedicated team of professionals in place at Southeastern, and we are looking forward to an outstanding year.”
