President Eric Bruntmyer has announced the selection of two new Provost Search Advisory Committees as the process for an individual to permanently fill the position of Provost at HSU moves forward.
The first advisory committee is broadly representative of HSU and is comprised equally of faculty and staff. Members of this committee are:
The second advisory committee is representative of university leadership and is comprised of all members from both the University’s Administrative and Deans Councils. Members of this committee are:
According to Bruntmyer, both advisory committees will have key responsibilities in the process of collecting vitas and reviewing, interviewing, vetting, and suggesting candidates for the President’s consideration.
“Though having two advisory committees may be a little unorthodox, it will more fully allow for the affirmation of finalists in a way which empowers our entire campus,” said Bruntmyer. “The Provost is an essential leadership position at HSU, and it’s critical that we explore candidates through a corporately representative process which builds trust with one another.”
The Provost role was previously held by Dr. Thomas V. Brisco, who announced in the Fall his intent to retire from the position, but continuing with the university in a part-time role and as an ex-officio member of the advisory search committees. Dr. Christopher McNair, Dean of the Holland School of Sciences and Mathematics, was appointed Interim Provost by Bruntmyer in December.
A job description is posted on the HSU website and candidates are encouraged to apply directly with the University. The goal of the search process is to have a new Provost in place by June 1, 2018.
