LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico State University's Board of Regents has scheduled a series of "listening sessions" to hear what the public wants in a new president.

KVIA-TV reports (http://bit.ly/RHkvwM) that regents held a session Thursday that attracted 50 people in the Stan Fulton Athletics Center.

Regents heard from people who had a wide variety of requests from improving campus diversity to working on more transparency.

Former NMSU President Barbara Couture abruptly stepped down last month following a mysteriously administrative leave. The school's executive vice president and provost Wendy Wilkins also stepped down.

Board chairman Mike Cheney said regents hope to announce a new president before the end of the spring semester.
