JMU community invited to meet finalists for provost position


Significant progress has been made in the search to hire a new provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at James Madison University. Following the university’s nationwide search, a large, competitive and diverse pool of applicants has been narrowed down to three finalists.

Finalists will be on campus beginning Nov. 10 to participate in open forums. The entire JMU community is invited to participate in these forums and encouraged to provide feedback on each of the candidates. The hiring committee has deeply valued input from the campus community throughout the entire hiring process and hopes for continued involvement as the search concludes.

Open forum times are listed below, and evaluation forms for each of the candidates will be available at following the forums. The deadline to post feedback is Nov. 28 at 5 p.m. All forums will take place in the Recital Hall of the Shirley Hanson Roberts Center for Music Performance in the Forbes Center for the Performing Arts.

The search committee is chaired by Dr. Mark Warner, senior vice president for student affairs and university planning, and consists of 13 committee members from across campus. JMU has secured the services of search firm Greenwood/Asher and Associates Inc. to assist in this process. JMU expects to name a new provost by Spring 2017.
