    Mason (expected) to be new U of I president

    DesMoinesRegister.com

    Iowa City, Ia. -- The Iowa Board of Regents is expected to name Purdue Provost Sally Mason as the University of Iowa's 20th president, sources close to the U of I said.

    Mason was one of four finalists who visited campus last week for meetings with the regents. The regents are expected to vote on Mason during a meeting Thursday, followed by a news conference in Iowa City.

    Mason, 57, is a biologist who spent 21 years at the University of Kansas before becoming provost at Purdue in 2001. She has a strong record of diversity initiatives,
    serves on national committees on education and has excelled at schools similar to Iowa, according to the U of I presidential search committee.

    The committee, which prepared an eight-page report about the finalists said Mason and Philip Furmanski, executive vice president for academic affairs, were campus favorites.

    The other finalists are Charles Bantz, chancellor at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and Mark Becker, executive vice president for academic
    affairs and provost at the University of South Carolina.

    Mason is paid $321,900 at Purdue, is tied for 25th with the U of I in public university rankings by U.S. News & World Report. Mason and her husband, Ken, a biology professor and textbook author, gave $2.2 million to Purdue.

    I'll believe it when I see her getting introduced at a press conference. Wait...they could change their mind after that, so I won't even believe it then.

    I have decided not to care who the University of Iowa hires. Wait until she meets Dan Gable and Brands. She might rething her decision. How would you like to get to a University and see those 2 psycho paths making more money than you do.

    That's funny! I forgot my glasses today, so when I first read this thread title, I saw "Manson", and I thought, "Charlie Manson, what a great fit for Gable and Brands"...

    Re: Mason (expected) to be new U of I president

    All smart-aleck comments aside, I'm glad this whole mess is finally coming to a close. She looks like a good choice for the position. And to answer the inevitable question: yes, we should care about this presidential search. Unlike athletics, it is in everyone's best interests for all three regent schools to have the best possible leaders at the helm. As I've stated in another thread, any time one of the three presidents (or even one of the Regents, God forbid) travels somewhere or meets with someone or gives a presentation or lecture, they represent the entire state's educational system, not just their school. I hope she turns out to be a good fit for the UI- they've needed it for quite some time.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Excellent post.

    Now...for more jokes...

    What we should be hoping for...is Mason to fire Barta. Her reasoning will be "you let the best basketball coach in the country get away!" Her next item of business will not be to find a new AD, but to fire Licklighter and lure Steve Alford back. Pollard will be quoted as saying...

    "Well, you can't call me shrewed now!".

    She'll then assume her normal role of university president and do a fantastic job, except she forgot all about hiring a new AD.

    Jim Zabel will fill in for the position all on his own.

    Kirk will go completely insane. Literally. In the fourth quarter of a close game, Zabel will leave his perch in the pressbox and stumble down onto the field - giving KF some suggestions, saying, "Look coach, this play is in 'Zabel's Hawkeye Hits'. It's gotta work!". KF at this point, being the 4th straight game of dealing with the incoherent, drunken recommendations - takes off running from the field screaming "LOUD NOISES!".

    The next day he regains his sanity, having removed himself from the mayhem and calls Chizik to see if he has any openings. Feeling sorry for him, Chizik offers him the water boy position, which Kirk gladly accepts.

    At least, that's one logical scenario as to what this hiring could mean for Iowa.

    Re: Mason (expected) to be new U of I president

    Tom Witosky is working on a scathing article that will show that other candidates were also considered for the position.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.
