University of Iowa announces schedule for president finalists


The Iowa Board of Regents has announced that the University of Iowa presidential search committee has narrowed down the candidate list to four finalists, the first of which is scheduled to visit campus Monday.

The Iowa Now website says that the four finalists are scheduled to visit campus and meet with various constituent groups on April 12-13; April 15-16; April 19-20; and April 22-23. Open forums will occur at 3:30 pm the first day of the campus visit.

The names of the candidates will be announced at 8am the day before their visits. The announcements will include each person’s curriculum vitae.

Due to social distancing requirements, a limited number of people will be allowed to attend the forums, so live video streaming of each event will be available. A link to the streaming sites can be found below. or

The Regents plan to meet at the end of the month to hear from the search committee and interview the finalists. They plan to announce their selection on April 30th.
