Six candidates to visit UI between Dec. 12 and Dec. 20

The University of Iowa Presidential Search and Screen Advisory Committee announced today that six finalists for the UI presidency will be visiting campus over the next 10 days to meet with faculty, staff, students and community leaders.

A highlight of each candidate's visit will be a symposium, open to the public, on "The Future of Public Higher Education." Each symposium will be held in the Iowa Memorial Union at 4 p.m. on the day of each candidate's visit, and all interested people are invited to attend.

Candidates will be visiting campus on Thursday, Dec. 12, and each day Monday through Friday, Dec. 16 through Dec. 20. The previously announced visit on Dec. 11 has been rescheduled. Each candidate's name will be announced the day before his or her visit.

Following all the visits, the search committee will forward its recommendations to the Board of Regents, State of Iowa.
