Western Kentucky University officially has its next president.
The school’s board of regents voted unanimously Friday morning to offer the job to Timothy Caboni.
The 47-year-old currently serves as vice chancellor for public affairs at the University of Kansas.
Caboni will be formally introduced as WKU’s next president at a Friday afternoon news conference.
Speaking after the vote, presidential search committee chairman Dr. Phillip Bale said Caboni is taking over the school at a time when many are questioning the value of higher education.
