DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Board of Regents has hired a Washington, D.C., search firm to help select the next president at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls.

The board announced the hiring of AGB Search on Thursday.

Regent Katie Mulholland, who is leading the board’s presidential search, says AGB has “a proven track record of assisting with successful searches in a timely and efficient manner.”

The firm will be paid $85,000, plus expenses, for its work, which will include identifying potential candidates and conducting background checks on applicants.

The search that culminated in the hiring last year of University of Iowa President Bruce Harreld is the subject of two lawsuits that claim regents and others violated state open meetings laws.
