CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – One of three finalists to become the next University of Northern Iowa president has withdrawn his candidacy, two days before the selection is to be made.

Chairs of the school's search committee said in a statement Tuesday that they regretted to announce the withdrawal of Avijit Ghosh, a professor and adviser to the University of Illinois president.

The decision leaves two candidates in the running to replace retiring UNI President Ben Allen. They are Michael Wartell, former chancellor of Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne and William Ruud, president of Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania.

The Iowa Board of Regents is expected to conduct final interviews in West Des Moines on Thursday before announcing its pick to lead the Cedar Falls-based university.

A campus search and screen committee will meet Wednesday morning.
