harreld.the member said yesterday that they may have "dropped the ball" when they decided to hire bruce harreld as the next university of iowa president. he said it may have appeared as though there was a bias from the beginning for harreld - but today, regents president bruce rastetter said there was nothing unusual about his hiring.he said other candidates were recruited and came to campus before the selection process began. "yes, bruce harreld also came to campus and bruce harreld wanted to do additional diligence work beyond what some of the other candidates did. which i would view as good. when he watned to talk to governor branstad to find out if there would continue to be increases in funding for the university of iowa, that's a good sign. rastetter said the negativity surrounding the appointment of harreld is troubling because it's not even close to the reality of what happened. the board stands behind harreld, saying they hope he makes the school proud and they are continuing their call, urging the community to give him a chance.
