The Board of Trustees approved a proposal to remove the interim designation of Jay Gogue’s title at its Feb. 7 meeting on the Auburn University at Montgomery campus.
The motion comes following discussion from board members at a Nov. 22, 2019, meeting in which the proposal was raised by Charles McCrary, chair of the trustees’ executive committee.
The title change means Gogue is now the 20th president of the University after having served as 18th president from 2007 to 2017.
Brian Keeter, executive director of public affairs, said "a timetable has not yet been determined" for selecting a new president.
"A national presidential search is typically a nine to 12-month process from the date that it begins," Keeter said in an email statement.
