NMSU could name new interim president this week

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — The New Mexico State University Board of Regents is expected to name a new interim president.

Regents are scheduled to meet Wednesday morning during a [auth] closed executive session and will then hold a special meeting where they could announce a selection.

The move comes after NMSU President Barbara Couture abruptly stepped down last week following a mysteriously administrative leave.

The state Board of Regents accepted Couture’s resignation in what board Chairman Mike Cheney described as a mutually agreeable separation.

Regents didn’t provide any specific reasons for Couture’s resignation, but said she has accepted a position as senior adviser for the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities.
