LONG BEACH : Two Finalists for President of Cal State

March 17, 1994

The field of candidates for president at Cal State Long Beach has been narrowed to two: Karl Anatol, interim president at the university since last March, and Robert Maxson, president of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

They will be interviewed Wednesday by the California State University Board of Trustees, which is expected to name a new president next Thursday.

Anatol has been at Cal State Long Beach since 1969, serving in many positions including university provost and vice president for academic affairs, dean of the School of Humanities, and acting dean of the School of Business Administration.

Maxson has been president of UNLV since 1984, guiding the university in unprecedented growth and overseeing an extensive expansion of the university's physical facilities. He revealed last month that he also was a candidate for president at the University of Oklahoma.

Two other semifinalists, Robert Detweiler and Manuel Ibanaz, withdrew from consideration before the two finalists were selected.

Nearly 80 people applied for the Cal State Long Beach position, which became vacant when Curtis McCray accepted the presidency of Millikin University in Illinois early last year.
