IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The president of a private liberal arts college in Ohio is a finalist to be the next University of Iowa president.

The Iowa Board of Regents on Wednesday announced that Marvin Krislov, the president of Oberlin College since 2007, will visit campus Thursday for interviews.

Krislov is the first out of four finalists who are expected to visit the university in the coming days. The regents are expected to choose a successor for retired president Sally Mason next week.

At Oberlin, Krislov leads a selective, four-year college of 2,900 students that also includes a prominent music conservatory.

Krislov previously worked as a vice president and general counsel at the University of Michigan, where he defended the school's admissions policies and oversaw a major NCAA investigation into its men's basketball program.
