Faculty plans evaluation of U of Northern Iowa candidates

Posted: Updated:

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - The faculty union plans to prepare a post-visit evaluation of the four presidential finalists scheduled to be on the University of Northern Iowa campus in Cedar Falls next week.

Union president Joe Gorton says the analysis being done by the presidential search committee "won't be enough to provide a definitive statement about who the faculty thinks should be the next president."

The last finalist is scheduled to visit campus Dec. 2, and the search committee is scheduled meet with the Iowa Board of Regents on the morning of Dec. 5. The regents are expected to select the new president during their Dec. 5-6 meeting in Cedar Falls.

Former President Bill Ruud left the university this summer to become president at a small college in Marietta, Ohio.
