As expected, a third member of the board that governs Iowa, Iowa State and U-N-I has resigned. Sue Erickson Nieland of Sioux City resigned from the Baord of Regents, saying two other resignations from the board in January made it “difficult” for her to continue to serve with enthusiasm. Nieland says she was “uncomfortable” with “the animosity” that she believes prompted the exit of the president of the Board of Regents, John Forsyth, who is C-E-O of Wellmark Blue Cross/Blue Shield. In her resignation letter, Nieland said she hopes the new members who’ll soon be serving on the board will do more than simply “rubber-stamp” the iniatives advanced by the universities. Once the dust settles in a few weeks, there will be four new members on the nine-member Board of Regents.
