The second finalist for the open position of Executive Director of Health Services, Vicky Rosa, took part in the second of two open forums at the Mass Media and Technology Hall Auditorium Wednesday morning.
Joe Harbaugh, captain of professional standards for WKU police and head of the search committee, said one of the two candidates will be hired within the next couple of weeks.
Rosa, a registered nurse with a Master's degree in Health Administration from College of St. Francis, spoke briefly about her experience in the field and took questions from an audience of 30 WKU faculty and staff members.
During her time at Butler, Rosa expanded services to students, created an HPV awareness program, implemented electronic health records and created a Women's and Men's Health Clinic, which was paid for by the student government association and the university.
Rosa said she applied for the job because WKU's campus is larger than Butler's and has many things to offer.
As for her strengths and ideas, Rosa said an open-door policy is most important in order to maintain communication with the staff and students. She also added that collaboration with people in other areas on campus is key.
The first candidate, Tom Jevas, took part in a similar forum Tuesday morning.
