University of Wisconsin System officials announced Tuesday that Jim Johnsen is the only remaining candidate for the position.

They said in a statement that several candidates removed themselves from consideration after expressing concern over being named publicly as a finalist during the coronavirus pandemic.

He's set to interview on June 9. A search committee will meet after the interview to decide on whether to recommend that the full board of regents hire Johnsen.
