The University of Houston’s governing board has unanimously picked Renu Khator, provost and senior vice president at the University of South Florida, as the only finalist for the job of UH system chancellor and president of the main UH campus, the Houston Chronicle reports. The regents are required by state law to wait 21 days before finalizing the appointment, the reporter, Matthew Tresaugue, writes. If confirmed, she’ll succeed Jay Gogue — who left UH this summer to lead Auburn University, his alma mater — in January 2008. John M. Rudley will continue to serve as interim chancellor and president until Khator takes office. See a press release on the UH system Web site for more details.
