    University Progress

    Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Thu, 09/19/2013 - 2:38pm

    Dear Faculty and Staff,

    Now that everyone has settled into the fall semester, I’d like to share some news about the progress the University has made in a couple of crucial areas.

    First, a search committee is narrowing down the list of finalists for the combined positions of provost and vice president of Academic Affairs. The person who serves in these roles helps oversee all educational affairs and activities, including faculty and research. So it’s a position that’s pivotal to the University’s continued success.
