The state Board of Regents is asking for public feedback on what qualities the board should look for in a new Iowa State University President.

Gregory Geoffroy announced plans to end his nearly 10-year long tenure as president on March 25. He’ll step down no later than July 31, 2012.

In a Tuesday press release, regents encouraged people interested in sharing their suggestions to submit comments at www.presidentsearch.iastate.edu/qualities. The regents expect they will approve the search process June 8.

In addition, the regents will host an open forum on the Ames campus April 27 for the public to discuss “leadership priorities and desired qualities” of the next Iowa State president.

The regents also requested consulting firms assist with the presidential-search process. According to the press release, Regent President David Miles said a number of firms will give presentations at the regents’ April 28 meeting at Iowa State University.
