IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Duane E. Papke has been promoted to associate director of the University of Iowa Department of Public Safety, effective Jan. 15.

Papke has held the position on an interim basis since November 1999.

"Duane brings to the position a wealth of experience and knowledge and in doing so has earned the respect of those within the department as well as the community," said Chuck Green, director of public safety.
