SOCORRO, N.M.--Two of the 15 candidates selected to move forward in the University of North Dakota  presidential search are also finalists in the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology presidential search.

In a post on the New Mexico Tech Physics Department Facebook page, the Board of Regents of New Mexico Tech announced Tuesday that University of Texas, Arlington Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Ronald Elsenbaumer and University of Toledo Engineering Dean Nagi Naganathan are finalists with three other candidates.

The Albuquerque Journal reported Wednesday a decision will be made Feb. 19.

According to the 2015 President's Report, New Mexico Tech had 1,895 students enrolled in the fall of 2015 while UND had 14,951.

On Wednesday, the UND Presidential Search Committee selected 15 applicants, including Elsenbaumer and Naganathan, for in-person interviews. At that time, non-voting committee member and Bismarck State College President Larry Skogen said some candidates would most likely drop out as the search progressed.
