Another guess about regents motives at UI
  I wish the state Board of Regents would cut through the fluff and save time and money by saying what I think they really want. Wanted: university president; must be black, female preferred.

 Problem in UI conflict lies with faculty

  The state of Iowa has an appointed board to oversee the operation of the state-supported university.

  The problem is that the faculty does not want any oversight on how it spends taxpayers’ money or how and what it teaches students.
