Moorehead joins UI Dual Career Network

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Wendy Moorehead has joined the University of Iowa Dual Career Network. She will assist Joan Murrin in locating employment opportunities for spouses or partners of faculty and staff who are being recruited or have been recruited to work at the UI within the past two years.

From 1995 to 1997, Moorehead was an assistant to the UI associate provost for international programs. Before that, she worked as a recruiter, placement specialist and company trainer in Seattle, Wash. She has a bachelor's degree in marketing from the UI and is a member of the Eastern Iowa Human Resource Association and the Professional Women's Network.

The UI initiated the Dual Career Network in 1994 to address the needs of spouses and partners during the recruitment of faculty and staff members. The UI was among the first institutions of higher education to implement such a program and remains a model for other educational institutions and business.

For more information about the network, contact Joan Murrin or Wendy Moorehead at (319) 335-3791.
