UIU Hires Consultants for Presidential Search


By Rachel Begle

FAYETTE, Iowa (AP) - A private university in northeast Iowa has hired consultants to help find its new leader.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports officials at Upper Iowa University in Fayette are working with AGB Search of Washington, D.C., to lead a nationwide search for its new president. They say a new leader should be in place this summer.

The hire would replace Alan Walker, who resigned in early January after taking a sabbatical scheduled to end in June. He had led the university since 2004.

University officials say its search committee is comprised of students, faculty, staff, alumni and trustees.
