LAS VEGAS --  The three finalists for the job of UNLV president were announced at a Board of Regents meeting Monday.

The first candidate named was Ricardo Azziz who is currently the president for Georgia Regents University.  The second candidate was Dr. Leonard Jessup who is currently the dean at the University of Arizona's Eller College of Management. The final candidate named was John White, the provost of UNLV.

The candidates will visit the UNLV campus the week of Nov. 10.
