FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) We reported
last month that University of Alaska Fairbanks Chancellor Dan White was a finalist to be the next president of the University of Wyoming. White announced Wednesday, however, that he would remain the chancellor at UAF.

He said in a statement that it will be an honor to continue to serve the University and thanked people for their support while he "explored a unique opportunity ‘outside.’"

Chancellor White’s office declined to comment on the hiring decisions of the University of Wyoming or why he is remaining at UAF.
