    Public Presentation: VP for Faculty/Staff Affairs & Development

    On behalf of the Search Committee, I am delighted to announce that three outstanding candidates for the position of Vice Provost for Faculty/Staff Affairs and Development will advance to the public portion of our search process. Candidates will meet with University stakeholders and conduct a Public Forum the week of July 20th. We invite the entire University community to attend the public forums where each candidate will present briefly on their vision for faculty/staff affairs and development and their qualifications to lead these initiatives under the Office of the Provost.

    The sessions have been structured to provide plenty of time for interactive dialogue, and public participation is essential to a successful experience for both the candidates and the University community. We invite all members of the University community to submit questions for these candidates via the modes outlined below and to attend the Public Forum presentations.

    To submit questions for the Public Forum:


    We will solicit your subsequent feedback to help inform the Provost’s eventual decision on who is the most qualified candidate to spearhead this new division.

    Information about Public Forum access can be found in the “Candidate Materials and Public Forum Info” section available on the Provost’s website here. You will also find candidate CVs, Feedback Surveys, and recordings of each Public Forum. Please note that users will need to log in with a NetID and password to access this page.
