Provost Search Committee Named

From: Public Affairs

Dear Colleagues and Students,

As you probably know, I have asked that Dr. Mark Warner, Senior Vice President for Student Affairs and University Planning, chair the search committee for the Provost and Senior VP for Academic Affairs position. As called for by the Faculty Handbook, I solicited nominees from the campus community to serve on the search committee. I then identified ten individuals to serve as committee members and subsequently invited them to serve. I am pleased to report that everyone has accepted my invitation. Committee membership consists of the following:

Dr. Mark Warner, Chair
Dr . Chris Hughes, Professor of Physics and Astronomy
Dr. Bob Kolvoord, Interim Director, School of Engineering
Dr. Reid Linn, Dean, The Graduate School
Dr. Merle Mast, Professor of Nursing
Dr. David Owusu-Ansah, Professor of History
Dr. Mary Slade, Professor of Exceptional Education
Dr. George Sparks, Dean, College of Visual and Performing Arts
Ms. Diane Stamp, Assistant Vice President, Budget Management
Dr. Daphyne Thomas, Professor of Business Law
Ms. Alyssa Franklin, student member

The search committee will begin its task immediately. Finalists for the position will be invited to the campus for interviews and interaction with the university community including faculty, staff and students. Ultimately the search committee will recommend a short list of finalists to President Alger who will make the final selection.

Best wishes for the remaining weeks of the semester!

Linwood H. Rose
President
