Future Western president Dr. Sabah Randhawa will be visiting the campus to discuss and finalize his contract on Tuesday, May 10. Randhawa does not have any public events scheduled for the day, Communications Director Paul Cocke said in an email.
The Board of Trustees have been negotiating the specifics of Randhawa’s contract over the last few weeks and will officially finalize it on Tuesday.
Randhawa will be meeting with campus leadership including President Shepard, the university vice presidents and others, Cocke said.
May 10 will be the first of several visits Randhawa will make to campus before he starts as president on August 1. President Shepard will retire from his position on June 30 and will be succeeded by current Provost and Vice President Brent Carbajal, who will act as president until August 1.
