Next IU president/trustee discussion


Recommended Posts

Looks like the new president has been selected.  As I expected it appears to be external as they specifically stated they brought in a diverse group of “external” candidates.  They are negotiating with the final candidate now.  I thought they would have already done all this and announced the new president by today but doesn’t sound like it will be much longer.

IU announced the search for a new president is in its final stages, according to a press release. The IU Board of Trustees authorized four trustees to begin negotiations for a contract with a final candidate. The candidate has not yet been named.

The Board of Trustees said it anticipates announcing the new president this month, who will take over for outgoing President Michael McRobbie on July 1. The board has been searching for a replacement for President McRobbie since he announced his retirement in August 2020.

She's got a very, very impressive resume and has been recognized by many. Stops at Georgia, Michigan St, Kentucky, Kansas.....so I'm hopeful she understands sports and importance to work in unison.

Did some quick google search as well. Major Hoops and Football fan. That's all I need to know.

She hot? Asking for a fellow poster who is looking for his next ex-wife opportunity. :coffee:

I haven’t researched her but good to see a woman get the opportunity.   

I really hope her sex did not come into play and that she got the job because she was the most qualified or a very qualified candidate.

It looks like things are finally rolling again for IUBB. A new AD and coach who absolutely love IU and now a President that appreciates and understands the importance of athletics. Seems like she will put a focus on athletic excellence as well as academic. This is very encouraging and the future is bright guys! Hopefully the days of posters claiming incompetence from our administration are over!
