    Finalists for ISU President to be Announced Today

    Finalists in the Iowa State University president search will be released hours before the Iowa Board of Regents meet Tuesday in West Des Moines.

    The names of the finalists will be released later today, search committee co-chairman Labh Hira, dean of the ISU business school, said in an email.

    Hira did not immediately respond to questions about the timing of the release. Last week, Hira said the committee would release the names of four or five finalists today.

    ISU faculty president Steve Freeman, a committee member, said the group today is finalizing travel arrangements and the dates for each finalist’s visit to campus before releasing the names,

    Regent Bob Downer of Iowa City said he was told the committee would likely recommend four finalists, and that two were “extremely strong candidates.”

    The board will meet Tuesday at the West Des Moines Sheraton Hotel at 8:30 a.m. The meeting agenda lists an update on the presidential search as item 12 of 20.

    The 18-person search committee conducted in-person interviews last Thursday and Friday with nine semifinalists in Minneapolis.

    Up to five public forums have been scheduled between Sept. 22 and Sept. 28. Each finalist is scheduled to attend a single one-hour session.

    At first glance Leath seems like the better fit, but having a "President Subbaswammy" would be more fun.

    I wonder if that's at all related to the current Big 12 stuff.

    Yikes! 2 finalists...that can't be good. What if your number one choice declines and you didn't like the alternative?

    Leath seems the better fit, but something about his picture bothers me

    It's really not good that two finalists dropped out. Either ISU didn't offer them enough to make the university worth their while, or the search committee didn't do a good job vetting the finalists.

    I'm curious about this too. Or was it because they were both not really in the running compared to these two?

    Looks like the villain in a bad 80's action movie. The guy who's trying to shut down the local youth hangout to build a golf course or something.

    So the question relevant to this board is, do either of these guys give a **** about Cyclone athletics?
