Provost Search

UD's provost search committee is asking for campus participation in identifying candidates for the position.

Besides working with a search consultant and placing ads for UD's provost post in major national media, the provost search committee is asking for campus participation in identifying qualified applicants.

"The success of our search hinges upon developing a strong applicant pool and identifying exceptional candidates for the position," said the committee's chairs, professor David Biers and School of Education and Allied Professions Dean Tom Lasley. "In your travels to professional meetings and in your interactions with colleagues on campus and at other institutions, we would like you to inquire about individuals who would be well-qualified candidates, even if they are not searching for a job change."

Ads are appearing in The Chronicle of Higher Education, Diverse Issues in Higher Education, The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education Magazine, Women in Higher Education and Inside Higher Ed. The position also is being circulated in professional organizations including the American Conference of Academic Deans and the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities.
