Murray State President Randy Dunn Let Go by University

The tenure of Murray State president Randy Dunn will come to an end as of June 30, 2014, as the Board of Regents of the university have chosen not to renew his contract by a vote of 7-4. There was no reason given for the decision, other than saying it was a personnel matter.

Dunn was hired by Murray State on in May of 2006, assuming his duties on December 1 of that year.

It is probably the continual search by Dunn for another position that has led to the decision, as he has interviewed for other jobs he applied for, including the presidency of Missouri State University. He also has been interviewed to become the next Florida Commissioner of Education. Both of those interviews were conducted in 2012.

In its May meeting the Board of Regents will work on plans for finding a replacement for Dunn.
