Last week’s announcement from University of Washington president Michael Young caught just about everyone by surprise. Young, who will take the top job at Texas A&M this spring, had only been at the helm at UW since 2011.

Several commenters on seattletimes.com criticized his early departure and urged the university to select a new president who has local ties and is more likely to stick around.

“When are they going to hire someone who wants to be the president of the UW? Leading the UW should be the pinnacle of a career not a stepping stone to something else,” wrote one.

UW provost Ana Mari Cauce is expected to be named interim president and could be a contender for the permanent position. Former Gov. Gary Locke’s name has also been mentioned as a potential candidate.

If you were in charge, whom would you select as the next president? What are the top attributes the UW should be looking for? Share your thoughts here:
