Interviews with the two finalists for the University of Tennessee presidency will be broadcast today on the Internet and will be available on the UT campus by teleconference for students, faculty, staff, alumni and the general public to observe.
Anyone can log onto the Web site http://helios.tns.utk.edu:8080/ramgen/encoder/psearch.rm. Technical considerations will permit 200 viewers online at any one time. Those who cannot log on immediately are encouraged to check the link periodically for site vacancies.
Campus locations for viewing the teleconference will be the University Center Ballroom and Studio B in Room 40 of the Communications and University Extension Building. The live video broadcast also will be available on the Vol Channel cable network. Individuals in charge of the monitors can tune them to Channel 3 to view the presidential interviews. This includes those monitors in public areas and classrooms as well as those in individual residence hall rooms.

John W. Shumaker, president of the University of Louisville, is scheduled to be interviewed from 4 to 5:30 p.m., EST.
The UT Board of Trustees Presidential Search Committee will be conducting the interviews in the Tennessee Tower state office building in Nashville.
The search advisory council recommended that all five UT campus communities be able to view the interviews live, said Carolyn Hodges, UT professor and chairperson of the Presidential Search Advisory Council.
