A committee of the state Board of Regents agreed to move forward in the process to replace longtime College of Southern Nevada President Michael Richards.
During the meeting, Monday, the Nevada System of Higher Education board voted to find a consultant to help in the national search since Richards will retire January 31.
Richards has been president of CSN for nearly 10 years.
When he retires, Margo Martin, the vice president for Academic Affairs at CSN will be acting president.
Martin has said she does not want the job permanently.
