Input Sought on UW Provost Finalists

May 27, 2016

University of Wyoming employees and students have the opportunity to provide input on the three finalists for the position of provost/vice president for academic affairs until 5 p.m. Sunday, May 29.

Surveys for all three finalists -- Kate Miller, dean of the College of Geosciences at Texas A&M University; Terence Parker, professor of mechanical engineering and former provost/executive vice president of Colorado School of Mines; and Jeffrey Thompson, dean of the College of Science at the University of Nevada-Reno -- may be found here.

Also available at that site will be information about each candidate, along with video recordings of their public presentations on campus -- and of their meetings with associate deans, directors and department heads. Thompson’s public meeting is 2 p.m. today (Friday).

The provost search process is similar to that used by the UW Board of Trustees in its selection of President Laurie Nichols. The committee has sought input from campus constituencies and established desired qualifications and characteristics; has reviewed and interviewed applicants; and has arrived at a list of finalists. The president will recommend a selection to the Board of Trustees.

The provost/vice president for academic affairs is the second-ranking leadership position at the university. Current Vice President for Academic Affairs David Jones will return to his position on the faculty of the College of Health Sciences.
