DATE:    August 13, 2018               

Dear Colleagues,

The search committee for the new Executive Vice President & Provost is seeking input from University of Iowa stakeholders regarding the important qualities and expectations the university community has for the new Provost. 

You will have the opportunity to provide input into the search process by attending an open forum, sponsored and facilitated by the University of Iowa shared governance leadership.  

Dates and times of the two forums are:  

  • Thursday, August 23 - 2:30 to 4:00 pm -- Divine Nine Room (#335) -- Iowa Memorial Union            
  • Monday, August 27 - 1:30 to 3:00 pm -- Iowa Theatre (#166) -- Iowa Memorial Union       

Everyone is welcome to attend one or both of the events.            

You will find relevant information about the search on the University of Iowa Provost Search website at: We would be especially grateful for nominations. Both applications and nominations can be submitted through the website. All nominated candidates will be screened, and those who meet the required qualifications for the position will be contacted directly by members of the search firm.
