WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) — Wheeling Jesuit University has started the search for its next president.

The university Board of Trustees announced the presidential search Monday.

Debra Townsley’s appointment as interim president ends in mid-July. She took over after the Rev. James J. Fleming resigned as president in January 2017 after four years.

The university says in a news release that chief of staff Mark Phillips will serve as acting president after Townsley steps down and will work with the Board of Trustees to facilitate the search process.
