OC president could go to Iowa

Oberlin College president Marvin Krislov is still in the running to become the next president of the University of Iowa.

He is among four finalists to be the unversity’s next president.

The Iowa Board of Regents announced that Krislov visited the campus last Thursday for an interview. Regents are interviewing candidates Joseph Steinmetz, Michael Bernstein, Bruce Harreld, and Krislov over a two week period to allow the members to get public and campus input on the finalists.

Board members are expected to announce Thursday the university’s next president to replace retired president Sally Mason.

The university was founded in 1847 and offers undergraduate and graduate classes to more than 31,000 students.
