Upper Iowa University Hires New President

FAYETTE,IA (AP) -- Upper Iowa University in Fayette has hired an internal candidate to be its next president. The private university announced Friday its next president would be William R. Duffy, who has been working as the school's senior vice president for academic extension. In that position, he was responsible for the university's off-campus offerings, including 19 education centers throughout the nation and its distance education programs. Duffy replaces Alan Walker, who resigned in early January. He had led the university since 2004. After a nationwide search, a committee recommended five candidates to the university board, but trustee Bill Cook says the board opted to forgo further interviews and chose Duffy. Before joining Upper Iowa, Duffy worked for 12 years as executive director at the University of Tennessee at Martin.
