Dear Colleagues,             

The first of two open forums to provide input regarding the important qualities and expectations the university community has for the new Provost will be tomorrow, Thursday, August 23 from 2:30 to 4:00 pm in the Divine Nine Room (#335) at the Iowa Memorial Union.  The forum is sponsored and facilitated by the University of Iowa shared governance leadership and the search committee.

The second forum will be held on Monday, August 27 from 1:30 to 3:00 pm in the Iowa Theatre (#166) at the 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.
