Officials at the University of Northern Iowa are continuing to search for the school's next president.

The committee in charge of selecting candidates for the job will hold an open conference call on Tuesday. The group has met once a month since October.

The committee is expected to have a closed discussion at the end of the meeting on candidate evaluations.

UNI President Benjamin Allen announced in August that he plans to retire by next July. He remains in his role until the university hires a replacement.
