The second finalist in the search for Iowa State’s next university registrar will have an open forum 11 a.m. to noon Tuesday to discuss the position and meet with Iowa State community members.

The second finalist to visit Iowa State and speak to an open forum was announced Friday. Jerry Ross will be the second finalist for the Tuesday forum in the Soults Family Visitor Center of the Memorial Union.

The university registrar position has responsibilities including, but not limited to, strategic planning, budgeting and managing record information of students. The position reports to Laura Doering, associate vice president for enrollment management and student success.
