LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico State University Board of Regents is set to pick a new president Monday afternoon.

The regents are scheduled to go into a closed session at 3 p.m. to vote, then meet in public at 4 p.m. to announce their pick.

Former Gov. Garrey Carruthers is among the five finalists. Also being considered are former Texas Tech University president Guy Bailey, former University of Nevada, Las Vegas president David Ashley, former Texas A&M University president Elsa Murano and University of Colorado Denver Dean Daniel Howard.

The regents were set to negotiate with a presidential candidate over the weekend but backed off those plans after an open government group complained.

The New Mexico Foundation for Open Government warned doing so would violate the state's open meeting laws.
