ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia Board of Regents Spokesman John Millsaps says the board is scheduled to discuss picking a president for the University of Georgia.
Millsaps says officials will conduct a teleconference Monday at 2 p.m. from the Board of Regents offices in Atlanta.
Last week, officials announced University of Georgia provost Jere Morehead was named the sole finalist for university president. Morehead is a 1980 graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law.
When Morehead, 56, was named provost in 2009, current president Michael Adams praised his integrity, compassion and institutional knowledge of the university. Morehead previously served UGA as vice president for instruction, vice provost for academic affairs, director of the honors program and acting director of legal affairs.
Adams is set to retire at the end of June.
