First candidate for ISU president visiting campus

The first finalist for the position is John M. Carethers, professor of human genetics and chair of the Department of Internal Medicine at University of MI.

Iowa State also announced that Pamela Whitten, the senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at the University of Georgia is the second finalist.

Brooks, who is also a professor of laboratory medicine and pathology at the University of Minnesota, will meet with University of Iowa Health Care faculty and leadership on Monday, Oct. 9. All were white men.

Sonny Ramaswamy holds a doctorate in entomology and is now director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture in Washington D.C.

That post is subject to an additional six-year term by congressional intent, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. Ramaswamy obtained his undergraduate and masters degrees in entomology in India and a PHD at Rutgers University.

Although Ramaswamy is not now in academia, he has academic administrative experience as head of the Department of Entomology at Kansas State University from 1997 to 2006.

Whitten joined UGA in February of 2014 after a national search for her position.

The visit will also include an hour-long public forum.
