The board anticipates naming a new president about 4 p.m. on Friday, April 30, with a media availability to follow.

The Board of Regents is a group of nine citizen volunteers who govern the state’s three public universities and two special K-12 entities—the Iowa School for the Deaf and Iowa Educational Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired—through policymaking, coordination, and oversight.
