VPR search resumes

The search for Iowa State’s next vice president for research resumes with visits from two remaining finalists.

The first finalist, Shashank Priya from Pennsylvania State University, completed his campus interview in March, prior the search being paused due to COVID-19. The second finalist will visit campus August 24-25; the third will visit campus September 1-2:
