RE: Allen retirement announcement
DA: Friday, August 3, 2012
Senator Chuck Grassley issued the following comment regarding UNI President Benjamin Allen’s announcement that he will retire by July 2013.
“I was sorry to hear of President Allen’s retirement but I’m glad to celebrate his accomplishments. He’s an intelligent, upstanding person who’s been dedicated to Iowa, higher education, and science. The University of Northern Iowa is the smallest of the three state schools, but its reputation has grown and continues to grow, thanks to the leadership of President Allen.”
