Mid-Missourians will get a chance next week to meet the three finalists for Lincoln University's vacant president's job.

The three finalists were identified Friday as:

• Bernard Franklin, Ph.D., currently executive vice president of Membership, and Student-Athlete Affairs/Chief Inclusion Officer for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Indianapolis, Ind., since October 2003.

• Rosalind Fuse-Hall, J.D. (law degree), currently executive director for Title III programs, and former chief of staff and liaison for the Board of Trustees, at Florida A & M University, Tallahassee.

• Kevin Rome, Ph.D., currently vice chancellor for student affairs at North Carolina Central University, Durham.

Curator Greg Gaffke, Jefferson City, a co-chair of the Presidential Search Committee, said Friday the committee hasn't ranked the candidates in any order.

A more detailed story, with times for each candidate's visit next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, will be in Sunday's News Tribune.
