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.
"We are encouraged by the talent and expertise among the finalists," Walker said in the release. "As anticipated, IU's reputation as a leading public research institution with world-class faculty, expert staff and exceptional students has attracted outstanding candidates."
McRobbie has served IU as President since 2007 and has served in senior positions for 24 years.
