President Steven Leath's departure will leave Iowa State University seeking a new leader as it faces budget cuts, enrollment growth and fallout from controversies.

Gogue has been president of Auburn University since 2007.

"Dr. Leath is immensely qualified individual selected from a number of other qualified individuals", said President Gogue. Board members met to consider whether to retain Leath after receiving an audit detailing his use of university planes.

While president, Iowa State achieved its highest student graduation rate, lowered student debt, grew research expenditures, set fundraising records and secured the university's largest private gift for an academic facility.

Charles McCrary Chairman pro tem said the official action of voting for Leath took place in the Student Center to symbolize the President's dedication to serving students.

Auburn University is a land-grant university, like ISU.

Leath said he was humbled and honored to be chosen for the position.

Auburn picked Leath after a search that didn't include an announcement of finalists. "We're a unique university, and he would need to know who we are".

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

President Leath holds a B.S.in plant science from Pennsylvania State University, M.S.in plant science from the University of DE, and Ph.D.in plant pathology from the University of IL. "If he has land-grant experience, he will know who we are".
