The search committee tasked with finding Iowa State's next vice president for human resources has identified four finalists. During their visits, the finalists will meet with representatives from all senior administrative offices, Faculty Senate, P&S Council, Student Government and Merit staff. They also will meet with university human resources staff.
The search committee is co-chaired by Michael Norton, ISU general counsel; and Beate Schmittmann, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The four finalists and their interview dates are:
April 24: Jay Stephen, associate vice president for human resources, Boise State University
April 26: Laurie Textor, chief human resources officer, University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh
May 1: Kelli Shuman, vice president of human resources and Title IX coordinator, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Rapid City
May 3 or TBD: Stephen Ferber, assistant vice chancellor of human resources, University of Pittsburgh
Iowa State University agricultural experts are available for media interviews regarding the 2017 planting season, which is set to get underway shortly. ISU experts are watching the commodity markets, weather patterns and soil conditions that will shape this year's growing season in Iowa.
Dependence on technology has dramatically changed how we communicate and interact, and is slowly eroding some of our core principles, said Michael Bugeja, professor and director of the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication at Iowa State University. In his new book, Bugeja looks at its impact on everything from fake news to texting while driving.
Parents know that co-sleeping is considered a no-no, but many still allow their children to crawl into bed with them at night. Doctors generally discourage co-sleeping, but Susan Stewart, a professor of sociology at Iowa State University, says it is a phenomenon that extends well beyond the infant and toddler years.
New Iowa State research offers compelling evidence that media violence affects aggressive behavior. This first-of-its-kind study, conducted in seven different countries, confirms six decades of research showing the effect is the same, regardless of culture.
Two Iowa State research groups are combining their expertise to change stem cells for nerve regrowth. The groups -- led by Jonathan Claussen of mechanical engineering and Surya Mallapragada of chemical and biological engineering -- just published their findings in the scientific journal Advanced Healthcare Materials.
Iowa State University researchers untangle the molecular mechanisms connecting plant stress and growth
ISU researchers are piecing together the genetic mechanisms that link plant growth and stress response. In a new paper, the research group links autophagy, an important energy recycling function, with slower growth during stress conditions. Autophagy plays a key role in animals as well as plants.
