The search for the University of Iowa's next president will be open and community-driven.
We're selecting a candidate as a campus. The members of the search committee represent the many diverse functions of our dynamic institution, and represent the voice and perspective of the campus community.
How the process works
Two groups will play vital, complementary roles in the search for our next president.
Search committee members
P. Sue Beckwith
Doug Van Daele
Michael J. Richards
President, Board of Regents, State of Iowa
Executive director, Board of Regents, State of Iowa
Chief academic officer, Board of Regents, State of Iowa
Engage with the process
You will have multiple opportunities to engage with the search as it progresses.
You can sit in on regular meetings of the search committee, which will be live streamed on the Board of Regents website. Times and dates of meetings will be announced here.
The university will host listening sessions for faculty, staff, and students to provide input as the search committee creates a position description for the next president. The listening session times and dates can be found here. Additionally, the committee will gather input from other constituencies including UI leadership, local community leaders, and alumni.
When finalists are named and are invited to campus for virtual or in-person visits (COVID-19 dependent), you will have the opportunity to participate in each candidate’s open forum. The times and dates of those forums will be announced here.
