KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The committee interviewing candidates for the presidency of the University of Tennessee will make a report and recommendation to the UT board of trustees at its June 27 meeting, the board’s secretary and general counsel said Wednesday.

Beauchamp E. Brogan said the board’s annual meeting is set for 9:30 a.m. in the board room of Andy Holt Tower. Board committees will meet June 26-27, he said.

The presidential search committee, which selected finalists and is interviewing three candidates for UT’s top job, will meet to assess the candidates at 5:30 p.m., June 26, in the board room.

Candidates for the presidency are Dr. G. Wayne Brown of Nashville, president of Cornerstone Communications; acting UT President Joseph E. Johnson; and Dr. Lee B. Jones, executive vice president and provost of the University of Nebraska. The committee considered 16 applicants, Brogan said.

The trustees will approve the university’s 1991-92 budget and consider increases in fees for the school year starting this fall, Brogan said.
