LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The pool of applicants vying to be Baker University's newest president has been narrowed from 72 to nine.

The Lawrence Journal-World (http://is.gd/GNzWxN ) reports the finalists will fly to Kansas City in November for face-to-face interviews with the search committee. Afterward, the committee plans to invite three finalists to campus for two-day interviews and send its recommendation to Baker's Board of Trustees in December. The goal is to name the next president by year's end.

The Baldwin City school is looking for a replacement for current President Patricia N. Long. She joined Baker in 2006 and announced in February that she would retire in June 2014.

Committee member Hoot Gibson says the university's next leader will need an "entrepreneurial spirit" and a firm grasp on modern models of higher education.
