Iowa State's 18-member search committee began work in late May. President Gregory Geoffroy's goal is to name the new executive vice president and provost before Thanksgiving.

Susan Carlson, associate provost for faculty advancement and diversity and professor of English, will serve as interim vice president for academic affairs and provost until the new position is filled.

She succeeds Benjamin Allen who will leave Iowa State at the end of May to become president of the University of Northern Iowa.
