'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

University of Pittsburgh trustees have chosen a West Coast consulting firm to lead their national search for a new chancellor.

Pitt has contracted with Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, the same firm Carnegie Mellon University used in its recent presidential search.

Stephen R. Tritch, chairman of Pitt's board of trustees, announced the board's choice in a letter sent to the university community on Tuesday morning.

Longtime Pitt Chancellor Mark Nordenberg's announcement in June that he plans to step down in August 2014 triggered the appointment of university trustee Eva Blum, a PNC Bank executive, as chairwoman of the search committee.

Tritch said the selection of a nationally recognized search consultant lays the groundwork for the search to begin in earnest as soon as the election of the committee's faculty representatives is completed and other members are appointed.

Elections for faculty positions on the search committee are scheduled for early September.

The search committee plans to conduct open forums in Oakland, Pitt's regional campuses and elsewhere this fall to collect input from students, faculty, staff members and alumni.

Tritch said the final stages of the process will be conducted privately to protect the confidentiality of the candidates.
