A candidate has been recommended to become the new chancellor for University of Michigan-Flint after a months long search. According to MLive, Susan Borrego who is currently vice president for enrollment management, planning and student affairs at California State University, Dominguez Hills, will become the eight leader at U of M Flint after being recommended by University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman.

Borrego would begin her appointment August 1st if she is approved by the Board of Regents who meet on Thursday, April 17th.

In a statement Coleman said "Dr. Borrego comes to UM-Flint with an impressive background in higher education administration, including strong advocacy for student affairs and diversity" and "her national leadership in those areas will be an asset to UM-Flint and its commitment to the student experience."

U of M-Flint Chancellor Ruth Person announced she was stepping down in August last January. U of M chancellors are appointed to five year terms by the president pending Board approval.
