The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga has narrowed its list of chancellor candidates to five, the university's search committee announced Wednesday.

The announcement winds down a four-month search process to hire a successor to longtime Chancellor Roger Brown, who retired in September.

"We had a strong pool of candidates, and our committee was very diligent in reviewing the experience and achievements of each candidate to narrow the list to five outstanding individuals," Larry Arrington said in a statement. Arrington is chancellor of the UT Institute of Agriculture.

Each candidate will field questions from faculty, staff and students during individual visits to UTC. The open forums will be held at the University Center Auditorium.

The finalists are:

* Diane D. Allen is provost and senior vice president for academic affairs and professor at Salisbury University, a public university on the eastern shore of Maryland.

* Steve Angle is senior vice president and professor at Wright State University, a public research university in Fairborn, Ohio.

* Jorge Haddock is dean of the school of management and professor at George Mason University, a public university in Fairfax County, Va.

* Harold P. Jones is dean of school of health professions at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

* James D. Moran III is vice chancellor for academic and student affairs for the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
