Candidates for Robillard’s replacement set to visit campus

Two finalists remain in the UI’s search for a new vice president for Medical Affairs and dean of the UI College of Medicine.

The announcement comes nearly one year after Jean Robillard announced his intent to step down from his role in overseeing UI Health Care and the College of Medicine days after the UI held a farewell reception for him. Robillard will continue to serve in the position until the search committee names a new leader.

Keller to serve as interim leader of Office for Research and Economic Development

UI President Bruce Harreld announced Thursday that John Keller, dean of the Graduate College and associate provost, will hold the position after Dan Reed announced he would be stepping down as head of the Office of Research and Economic Development Sept. 21.

“… I am exceptionally confident that John will lead this critical part of the university in a manner that will inspire excitement and trust as we continue to move the research and scholarship enterprise forward,” Harreld said in the announcement.

“I am honored to serve the university in this interim capacity,” Keller says. “I have witnessed firsthand the strength of our research and scholarship, and I appreciate the opportunity to help move our institution forward.”

With approval from the state Board of Regents, Keller will step into this position Oct. 1.

Keller will continue to serve in his current position as the Graduate College dean and an associate provost — positions he has held since April 2002.

“I am honored to serve the university in this interim capacity,” Keller said in the announcement. “I have witnessed firsthand the strength of our research and scholarship, and I appreciate the opportunity to help move our institution forward.”
