“My understanding from a very brief report I received from the chairman is that they had extended the deadline. So, the deadline is not expired as yet. I believe it is November fifth is the deadline. So we will have to wait and see after the deadline passes. I think they have received a number of applicants, applications. After November fifth, we will have to assess them properly.”



“Has the University’s board considered, perhaps, keeping Dr. Palacio on in a permanent capacity?”

“I am not sure. I am not sure about that. I don’t know if he applied, if he is one of the applicants. But, certainly if he has applied, he will be considered.”
