University of Iowa Presidential Search Update

This November, the search for the next president of the University of Iowa took three big steps. Following the October announcement of search committee chairs Sandy Daack-Hirsch and John Keller, the full search committee was announced November 10. The committee is charged with identifying finalists for the Board's consideration and includes a diverse membership of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and Board members. 

Next, the Board announced the selection of AGB Search as the firm to assist with the selection process on November 12. AGB will help define the goals of the search and develop the position specification and search timeline, in addition to recruiting potential candidates and numerous other duties. 

Finally, the search committee announced its first meeting would take place December 4. All search committee meetings will be streamed live on the Board's YouTube channel.
