President Martin Jischke will lead a group of 33 new faculty and staff (and two students) on a two-day Road Scholars tour of north central Iowa, April 3-4.

The purpose of the Road Scholars tour is to introduce new faculty and staff to the state of Iowa. Since the tours began in 1992, more than 260 faculty and staff have participated in a bus trip.

Tour stops this spring include Story City, Webster City, Fort Dodge, Manson, Storm Lake, Spencer, Okoboji, Emmetsburg, Humboldt and Belmond. Group members will visit several high schools, Buena Vista University, Iowa Lakes Community College, a Humboldt County farm, Iowa Lakeside Lab and several local businesses. They will be guests at an ISU alumni reception in Spencer Friday evening.
