The president of the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education is a one of three finalists for a job out west.  CPE President Bob King is in the running for the University of Wisconsin System presidency. 

According to its website, the University of Wisconsin System is one of the largest systems of public higher education in the country with 13 four-year universities and an annual enrollment of more than 180,000 students. 

A UW System news release says a Board of Regents selection committee plans to interview the three finalists on Monday and announce a hiring decision to the public next Thursday. 

Dr. King has led the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education since 2009.  Before then, he was Chancellor of the State University of New York.
