Marvin Krislov will remain the president of Oberlin College for a little bit longer.
He was among four finalists to be the University of Iowa’s 21st president but did not win the job.
Joseph Steinmetz, Michael Bernstein, Bruce Harreld, and Krislov were interviewed over a two-week period to get input from the public and campus on who was the the top candidate.
Krislov visited the university Aug. 27 for his interview.
Bernstein is a senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at Tulane University, Steinmetz is an executive vice president and provost at the Ohio State University, and Harreld a former faculty member at Harvard Business School.
The university has more than 31,000 students and is home to one of the nation’s largest academic medical centers.
The Iowa Board of Regents announced last Thursday that Harreld will replace retired eight-year president Sally Mason after a seven-month search.
Oberlin College communications director Scott Wargo declined to comment on Krislov’s interview at another university.
