MCG's Rahn Arkansas job finalist

Medical College of Georgia President Daniel W. Rahn is one of four finalists to fill a similar post with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, the University of Arkansas System announced Tuesday.

Dr. Rahn said it is the first time he has been a formal candidate for another position since he became president in 2001 and it is not something he sought.

“I was contacted and asked to take a preliminary look,” he said. “And based upon what I saw, I’m impressed with the institution and I agreed to be a candidate.”

Dr. Rahn will go to the Little Rock-based school for a two-day visit on March 9 and University of Arkansas System President B. Alan Sugg is expected to make a recommendation shortly after that to the university system’s Board of Trustees, spokesman Ben Beaumont said.

The other three candidates will also make two-day visits. The position is actually called the chancellor of the school but it is the equivalent of a school president that reports to the president of the system.

The current chancellor, I. Dodd Wilson, retires June 30.
