Iowa regents plans would affect admissions, hiring

It might get easier for students to apply to Iowa's three public universities, and for those schools to hire employees.

The Iowa Board of Regents released details of plans Tuesday that may be implemented during an ongoing efficiency review.

They include creating a program that would allow students to apply to the University of Iowa, Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa at once.  Currently, students have to apply separately even though the schools use the same admissions scoring index.

Another change would require the schools to calculate students' admissions scores uniformly.  Each school currently computes them differently for students whose high schools don't keep class rankings.

A third plan would eliminate search committees for some professional and scientific openings.  A review found that step frequently causes delays.
