Provost search

Submitted by Kris Boone,


As we continue our national search for the university’s next executive vice president and provost, we are hosting virtual town halls to gather input. 

Input and engagement from our university community is critical throughout the search, and we are actively seeking participation from students, faculty and staff. Please share this information and encourage others to participate as well.

Two virtual town halls will be held on Wednesday, February 3. A session will be held for faculty and staff from 2-3 p.m. and another for students from 3-4 p.m.

Town hall sessions will include remarks by the search committee co-chairs, Dr. Susan Olesik, divisional dean of natural and mathematical sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences, and Dr. Grace Wang, executive vice president for research, innovation and knowledge enterprise. A discussion will follow about the academic environment and the desired qualifications of the next executive vice president and provost. The input will be used to inform the leadership profile of this position.

More information and the links to join the sessions is available at

At any time during the search, nominations can be submitted on the Isaacson, Miller website and questions and feedback can be sent to

Thank you for your engagement and support as we work to find our next academic leader.
