Last week, the four finalists for Iowa State’s next president were selected, but the names remained anonymous. 

Monday, the first of the four candidates will be on the ISU’s campus speaking to the ISU community for the first time. However, these open forums will only be successful if students, faculty and staff actually show up. 

Luis Rico-Gutierrez, dean of the College of Design and co-chair of the presidential search committee, said the community voice is an important part of the process and that is why he encourages people to attend the open forums. 

They were originally set for Oct. 5, 6, 9 and 10. Due to scheduling, they were moved to Oct. 9 to 12. The candidates will be announced 24 hours before each open forum. 

Here are the places for each open forum: 

4 p.m. Oct. 9 in the Memorial Union Sun Room 

4 p.m. Oct. 10 in the Memorial Union Durham Great Hall 

4 p.m. Oct. 11 in the Memorial Union Sun Room

4 p.m. Oct. 12 in the Memorial Union Durham Great Hall
