EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- A 21-member committee is searching for a new University of Oregon president who works well with others.

The committee will review candidates in coming weeks to replace Richard Lariviere, who was fired in December.

The Register-Guard (http://bit.ly/IelSf8 ) says the public won't know who applies until one finalist is named in June. The committee will narrow the candidates to a dozen next month, and then will fly them all in for an interview. It hopes to seat a new president before September.

Oregon University System Vice Chancellor Sona Andrews says the committee wants someone who can work with other institutions in the system and with others at the university.
