Let's get rid of university presidents.
UMD has a new president, but it's not a major departure from the status quo.
The search for UMD's next president has been an uninspiring process.
The rest of the process will remain confidential as a group of finalists is chosen and interviewed.
A final decision on whether the position will be permanent is anticipated by next semester.
UMD's presidents need to be more accountable. An election would help.
