Open forums planned for facilities associate VP finalists

Two finalists will interview on campus next week for Iowa State's associate vice president for facilities planning and management post, left vacant by the retirement of David Miller in January. Candidate names will be announced one day prior to their visits, which will include an open forum. 

The successful candidate will oversee facilities planning and management (FPM) operations, with an emphasis on collaboration, accountability and responsibility. FPM operations include buildings and grounds; planning, design and construction; utilities; space management and sustainability. Four auxiliary units -- building security, postal and parcel, flight service and Veenker Memorial Golf Course -- also report to the associate vice president. FPM is part of the university services division, led by senior vice president Kate Gregory.

Candidate résumés will be posted online when names are announced. Evaluation forms will be available at the open forums or by contacting search committee chair Paul Richmond via email. Completed forms can be turned in at the forums, returned to 1122 Environmental Health and Safety or emailed to Richmond (3 p.m. May 5 deadline).
