IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An Ohio State University administrator is one of the four finalists to become president of the University of Iowa.

The Iowa Board of Regents said Sunday that Joseph Steinmetz will visit the campus in Iowa City on Monday to meet faculty and students. He is currently Ohio State's executive vice president and provost.

Steinmetz is the third finalist identified publicly. The Iowa Board of Regents is expected to choose a successor for retired president Sally Mason on Thursday after the fourth finalist visits campus.

Steinmetz has been at Ohio State since 2009. Before that, he led the University of Kansas' College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for three years.
