It was a sad day when we all heard the news about President Dr. Al Bowman's retirement. He was a staple in our community and really set the bar for what a president should be, representing such a fantastic school such as Illinois State University. The anticipation of finding a new president has been high amongst students and faculty ever since. The wait is finally over! After narrowing all possible candidates down to only four, which included Vice President Larry Dietz, they have finally reached a decision. Check out this press release introducing our 18th President of Illinois State University, Timothy Flanagan.
