Greetings, Fort Myers Area University  of Iowa Alumni & Friends!


Barbara J. Wilson, executive vice president and vice president for academic affairs for the University of Illinois System, will become the 22nd president of the University of Iowa on July 15, 2021. The Board of Regents, State of Iowa, announced Wilson as its unanimous selection at its meeting in Iowa City on Friday, April 30.

“I am delighted to be part of the next phase of the University of Iowa,” Wilson says. “This is a very exciting moment. I said during my forum, and I meant it, that in many ways this is my dream job. I was born and raised in the Big Ten and I’m a Midwesterner at heart. I’m all in and excited to be here. I’ll be cheering for the virtues and fortunes of this university. Count me in.”
