Provost expected to serve as interim UNI president

Posted: Updated:

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) -- The no. 2 administrator at the University of Northern Iowa is expected to serve as interim school president during a search to replace his boss.
  
The Iowa Board of Regents said Tuesday that it would consider the appointment of Jim Wohlpart next week. It would be effective July 3 and increase his salary to $357,000 until a new president is picked.
  
UNI President Bill Ruud announced earlier this month that he's leaving the position after three years to become president of Marietta College in Ohio.
  
Ruud hired Wohlpart last year as provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. He'd previously worked as dean of undergraduate studies at Florida Gulf Coast University.
  
The board is expected to consider a plan to search for Ruud's replacement at a meeting in July.
