Flanagan will begin his new job Aug. 15.

He replaces Al Bowman, who announced in December that he would step down after a decade as president and 35 years overall at ISU.

Flanagan is also a sociology professor and has a Ph.D. in criminal justice from the University at Albany, which is part of the State University of New York.

His accomplishments include creating new academic programs, securing tens of millions of dollars in capital investment and establishing record-setting levels of fundraising and private support.

He says he was drawn to ISU by its reputation as a top public university.
