Steven Leath finalist for Auburn University president

Report: Leath on 'short list' as next president of Auburn University ISU president finalist for Auburn presidency
Howard Terry | 21 March, 2017, 00:38

The candidate offered the position is Dr. Steven Leath, the President of Iowa State University.

Leath became Iowa State's president in 2012 after five years as vice president for research at the University of North Carolina.

When inaugurated, Leath said he believed in the future of public universities, the branding of Iowa State and the value of a Cyclone education. He has emphasized enhancement of Iowa State's nationally recognized, 1,700-acre campus and its public art collection, one of the largest among USA public universities.

"The Board will hold a special meeting soon to discuss the presidential transition at Iowa State".

"This is a great day for Auburn", said trustee Raymond Harbert, who chaired the 14-member presidential search committee.

He worked in several research and teaching positions at North Carolina State before becoming vice president for research at the University of North Carolina in 2007, his only position at a non-land grant university. "ISU has made great strides during his tenure, including achieving record enrollment".

That school will make an announcement on its next president Monday. "I raised more money than any president in Iowa State history". I'm sure this played a large part in Auburn's decision. We think you'll love our Little Village. "I promise to work tirelessly to turn this university over to my successor better than I've found it".

In a letter to the Iowa State community announcing his resignation, he mentioned the land purchased saying, "In fact, it was not long ago we bought a farm here and expected to retire here". I could not be more excited, or frankly more humbled, by this once in a lifetime opportunity. We will always consider ourselves Cyclones and have great affection for this university and its lovely campus; it is a very special place. Auburn has great students and highly dedicated staff.
