ASU Chancellor Search

The last two candidates for ASU Chancellor, in the order of their appearance on campus:

Michael L. Hanes appears to be a native of Indiana ... at least all three of his degrees are from Indiana University. He's trained in educational theory, and his career -- a long one -- has been in colleges of education in Florida, Michigan, South Carolina, and Georgia. Currently, he's president of Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus. He's done both private and governmental consulting on educational practices and theories and he's done substantial publishing.

Daniel S. Papp is currently, in a sense, Michael Hanes' boss (see above), in that he is a senior vice chancellor of the University System of Georgia. He stands out from the other candidates in that his academic speciality is international relations, and he appears to have a good deal of experience in Russia. A graduate of Dartmouth College and of the University of Miami in Florida, he's spent most of his professional life in Georgia at a variety of institutions. He has by far the most impressive list of publications, mostly in the field of international affairs, and he's done consulting on strategic studies for the U.S. government.
