Search committee for new UNI president to meet today

Posted: Updated:

The University of Northern Iowa is figuring out what it wants in a new president.

Former President Bill Ruud took a new job in Ohio as the president of Marietta College. Today, the first of many meetings will happen to look at the kind of leader UNI wants moving forward.

For the first time, a special committee of about 20 people will meet at 11:30 a.m. inside Maucker Union.

Their job is to identify the finalists for the Board of Regents. The committee will also work with a search firm that's been hired.

The hope is to have a new president chosen by mid-December.

While they continue their search, Dr. Jim Wohlpart is serving as interim president. He served as provost at UNI for more than a year, and he was the dean of undergraduate studies in Florida for more than a decade.
