West Liberty University's board has appointed a committee to conduct a search for the school's next president.

The 21-member committee includes the Board of Governors, members of the university's Foundation Board, and representatives of students, faculty and staff.

The Board of Governors approved the search committee on Wednesday. The committee's first meeting will be held April 28.

Board of Governors chairman George Couch says in a news release that the goal is have a new president on campus by Jan. 1, 2016.

Former President Robin Capehart resigned on March 11 following an ethics complaint and a vote of no confidence by the faculty.

John McCullough is serving as interim president.
