ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system has named two semifinalists for president of Southwest Minnesota State University.

The candidates are Connie J. Gores and Ronald Rosati.

Gores has served at Winona State University since 2007 as vice president for student life and development. She was interim president of Winona State last summer.

Rosati has been provost of Southeast Missouri State University since 2010.

Rosati will visit Southwest Minnesota State on Jan. 30 and Gores will visit the Marshall campus on Feb. 1.

The MnSCU Board of Trustees is expected to act on Chancellor Steven Rosenstone's recommendation on a final candidate at its Feb. 26 meeting. The new president is expected to begin in July.

Ron Wood has been SMSU interim president since July 2011, after David Danahar retired.
