LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming is expected to announce it 26th president on Friday.

A news release from the university on Wednesday said the UW Board of Trustees has scheduled a special meeting on Friday morning to select the new president from among three finalists.

The three finalists for the job are: Jeremy Haefner, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Henrietta, New York; Duane Nellis, president of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas; and Laurie Nichols, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota.

The new president will be UW's third in as many years. Current President Dick McGinity was appointed to the job in January 2014.
