Provost Search Update

The Provost Search Committee has selected four candidates to bring to campus for interviews. Each of the four candidates will spend a day and a half on campus starting the week of April 22. The names of the candidates and the dates of their visit are below.  Their CVs will be posted on the employee portal.  An online evaluation form will also be made available on the portal.  Please note, you will need to complete a separate online form for each candidate you wish you evaluate.  For each candidate, there will be an open forum as well as meetings with multiple University constituency groups.  Campus input on these candidates and broad participation in the forums are extremely important to the committee. Please make an effort to meet with and review as many of the candidates as your schedule allows. The Committee thanks you in advance for your participation in this process.
