There was a lack of attendance at a state Board of Regents’ public hearing on Thursday.

Regents announced the hearing at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, less than 24 hours in advance of the scheduled event.

“We’re glad to be here, and it’d be a pleasure to hear the appeals,” said University of Iowa spokesman Tom Moore. “The purpose of these hearings is to give input to the Board of Regents.”

The regents hold the hearings to help boost the transparency of their efficiency study, TIER. 

TIER is expected to help the three state universities save tens of millions of dollars over the next two years.

The UI will implement changes in human resources, information technology, and financial spending as part of the efficiency measures.
