Call for Nominations/Applications for Executive Vice President & Provost Position

Dear Members of the University Community:

In January, President Sullivan invited nominations for a search committee to seek a successor for Dr. Arthur Garson, Jr., and I am honored to serve as the Committee Chair. Our 18 member committee is a broad representation of the University community, including faculty, staff, students, and members of the Board of Visitors.

After a thorough screening and interviewing process, the firm of Russell Reynolds Associates, was chosen as our search consultant, with Dr. Ilene Nagel, Leader of their Higher Education Practice, serving as our principal consultant. The Committee, University leadership, and Dr. Nagel then developed a comprehensive position description and candidate specification, which is available on this site.

The Committee welcomes and encourages nominations for this important position from all members of the University community. Nominations and applications should be sent to:

I value and appreciate the commitment of the Committee, the interest and engagement of the University community, and the President’s strong support for this critical search.


David W. Breneman
University Professor, and Newton and Rita Meyers Professor in Economics of Education and Public Policy
