The Board of Regents’ Transparent, Inclusive Efficiency Review is a comprehensive efficiency study of Iowa’s three public universities.

The board will hold a special meeting this week to discuss the eight efficiency proposals from the first phase of the study.

Oct. 2 — Special regents meeting 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in room 230-240 of the Scheman Building

  • The board will review and discuss the eight remaining business cases, which deal with the universities’ human resources, information technology, finance and facilities departments.

Oct. 8 to 17 — The board will hold town hall meetings on campus to receive feedback about the remaining eight cases. 

Oct. 16 — Iowa State University open forum

Nov. 3 to 14 — A telephonic board meeting will be held sometime in the first half of November to vote on the remaining eight business cases.
