Steven Leath finalist for Auburn University president

The trustees plan a special meeting for Monday to name Iowa State President Dr. Steven Leath the 19th president of Auburn University.

Iowa State University president Steven Leath is reportedly on the "short list" of Auburn University's picks for its next president.

"The contribution Jay and Susie Gogue made to Auburn is immeasurable", said Charles McCrary, president pro tem of the Auburn Board.

"Dr. Leath is immensely qualified individual selected from a number of other qualified individuals", said President Gogue.

Des Moines Register noted that Leath has been recently criticized after an audit by the Iowa Board of Regents found that he used a university-owned airplane for personal benefit.

However, Auburn officials were impressed with his education-administration background and especially his familiarity with land grand universities such as Auburn, which must include agricultural-related research among its many programs.

"To the trustees, I appreciate your trust and confidence", Leath said in the meeting after asked if he'd like to speak.

Auburn picked Leath after a search that didn't include an announcement of finalists. "I want to make it clear that the University is really about the people".

A 14-member search committee began looking for the next president last September after Gouge announced he would retire.

"I don't know, but it's nearly a necessity for (the next president) to have that land-grant experience", Earlon McWhorter said.

Leath reimbursed ISU for the cost of 52 training flights, as well as for costs associated with several out-of-state trips.
