Presidential search committee schedules campus visits for December

The University of Iowa Presidential Search and Screen Advisory Committee has announced that it plans to invite candidates for the presidency of the University of Iowa to campus the weeks of Dec. 9 and Dec. 16.

The search committee at its Nov. 19 meeting created subcommittees to conduct off-campus interviews of candidates for the presidency, said Jonathan Carlson, UI law professor and search committee chairman. Following the completion of the off-campus interviews, the committee will invite several candidates to campus, he said.

The Board of Regents, State of Iowa appointed the 26-member committee in June to assist with the search for a successor to Mary Sue Coleman, who left the UI on Aug. 1 to become president of the University of Michigan. Former UI President Willard “Sandy” Boyd is serving as interim president.
