CEDAR FALLS, Iowa  — A former Temple University president who was recently forced out by the school’s board is a finalist for the University of Northern Iowa presidency.

The Iowa Board of Regents says Neil Theobald will visit the Cedar Falls campus Tuesday.

The regents are searching for a replacement for Bill Ruud, who left this summer to become president of Marietta College. Two other finalists will be announced this week, and the board is expected to make its choice next week.

Theobald led the Philadelphia-based Temple since August 2012. Its board took a no-confidence vote in him in July, announcing its intent to dismiss him. He reached a resignation agreement days later.

The board had been critical of Theobald’s handling of a $22 million financial aid shortfall and his removal of Temple’s provost.
