Former CSU President Larry Penley is looking to take post at the helm of the University of Dallas, which touts itself as one of the nation’s leading catholic universities, the UD student newspaper reported Thursday.
Penley, who is one of three top finalists for the position of UD president, resigned from CSU under scrutiny from student leaders and state lawmakers for what some said were problematic financial shifts and reporting practices a year ago.
Since leaving CSU, the former CSU leader applied at the University of Idaho but lost to another applicant. He is now employed at a private consulting firm called Hayes Group International.
When he left CSU, Penley said he was looking for leadership positions at other universities but didn’t provide specifics.
UD didn’t return calls from the Collegian Thursday evening.
