In 2013, the Iowa Board of Regents asked the state universities and special schools that it oversees to institute several recommended best practices for responding to public information requests and providing Iowans with ready access to information. This site outlines some of the key ways that Iowans can access information as well as provide input to state officials.

Public records requests

Key sources for news, information

Public hearings on regents agendas

Prior to each state Board of Regents meeting, Iowans can review the agenda online and, if desired, provide comments at one of six public hearings held at the regents institutions and the board office. All hearings throughout the state will be video recorded and posted on the regents hearings website. The site also contains public hearing details and schedules through 2014.
