While the eyes of the world are watching the events unfolding in Florida, a less dramatic presidential selection process is taking place in Ames. Business College Dean Ben Allen chairs the committee searching for a new president at Iowa State University. He says they’ve begun the evaluation of the prospects and the strength of the pool of the candidatesHe says they haven’t yet released the names of the finalists. Allen says they would like to have four or five names to send to the State Board of Regents early next year.This selection is mundane compared to what’s happening nationwide. Allen says at one time he thought holding an election might’ve been the best way to select the new ISU president. Allen says he’s now glad they have a “more rational” method.The new ISU president will replace Martin Jischke who left earlier this year to take the same job at Purdue.
