No student on search committee for new U-M president
This spring the President of the University of Michigan, Mary Sue Coleman, announced she is leaving that post .
The U of M Board of Regents appointed a Presidential Search Advisory Committee this summer and this time it does not include a student.
Matt Nolan is an attorney and the director of Dow Corning’s Political Action Committee. He is the former Michigan Student Assembly president. And he sat on the search advisory committee that chose Coleman to be President.

Listen to the interview above to hear the answer.
