RUSO Regents Plan to Interview 15 for SWOSU President’s Position

Regents of the Regional University System of Oklahoma (RUSO) voted to conduct interviews with 15 candidates for president of Southwestern Oklahoma State University with campus locations in Weatherford and Sayre.

The regents met January 29 in Edmond.

RUSO Executive Director Sheridan McCaffree said zoom interviews will be done with the 15 during the first part of February with the list narrowed for in-person interviews to be conducted when the regents meet again in late February in Weatherford.

The selection process started with 83 candidates that applied for the position currently held by SWOSU President Randy Beutler, who is retiring June 30.

A screening committee, led by Regent Jane McDermott and comprised of 21 individuals, earlier reviewed credentials of the 83 and narrowed the list, which was presented to the regents at the recent meeting.
