SHREVEPORT, La. (KTBS) -

The LSU Shreveport Chancellor Search Committee has narrowed down the search for its next Chancellor to four candidates.

The applicants were chosen after a series of face-to-face interviews with a group of semi-finalists.

The search committee is made up of a group of LSUS faculty, staff, students, alumni, members of the LSUS Shreveport Foundation Board of Directors, and members of the Shreveport-Bossier community at-large.
