Provost candidate visits begin next week

Campus visits this month are confirmed for four finalists for Iowa State's senior vice president and provost leadership post. The first candidate arrives Monday. The visit dates for the four candidates are:

  • Candidate 1, April 15-16
  • Candidate 2, April 17-18
  • Candidate 3, April 22-23
  • Candidate 4, April 29-30

The name and curriculum vitae for each finalist will be shared on the administrative searches website the day preceding their visit.

Campus forums

Each candidate will meet with members of the university community during their two-day visit and participate in a campus forum at 3 p.m. on the first day. The forum schedule is: 

  • Candidate 1, April 15, Alliant Energy-Lee Liu Auditorium, Howe Hall
  • Candidate 2, April 17, Sun Room, Memorial Union
  • Candidate 3, April 22, Sun Room, Memorial Union
  • Candidate 4, April 29, Alliant Energy-Lee Liu Auditorium, Howe Hall

For those who cannot attend in person, the forums will be recorded and made available on the search page after all the finalist visits are completed.

Everyone participating in a campus forum is encouraged to complete an online candidate feedback form for that candidate.

Vice president for economic development and industry relations and dean of the Ivy College of Business David Spalding is leading the 18-member search committee, assisted by Parker Executive Search firm. Senior vice president and provost Jonathan Wickert announced in January plans to return to the faculty in the department of mechanical engineering this summer.
