ILE - In this March 23, 2013 file, Christopher Kennedy, chairman of the University of Illinois Board of Trustees, presides over a meeting of the board in Chicago. Kennedy says rumors that he's interested in becoming the next university president are not true. Kennedy wrote an email to fellow trustees after learning of the rumor and said that he's confident the committee set up to search for a replacement for current President Bob Easter will find a good leader. Easter plans to retire in 2015. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green, File) less
