Provost Search Update #4


March 19, 2021

Dear Faculty and Staff:

As we say goodbye to snow for the winter season, we write with an update on the Provost search process. Advertising and marketing of the position began with the search's launch, and to date, the consulting firm reports there is strong interest. They have been working on UNI's behalf, recruiting and engaging in conversations with potential applicants and candidates. The deadline for best consideration is Friday, March 26, 2021. We encourage you to widely share information about the search and engage your professional networks to encourage people to apply.

Please anticipate that finalists will be "on campus" at the end of April and the first week of May. We recognize this time frame intersects with finals week and will be a busy time of the year, but our goal is to facilitate broad and strong campus engagement in the process. As soon as specific dates are known and additional details become available on whether finalists will visit virtually or physically, as well as the time of the open forums, we will share that with the campus. 

Information about the search is available on the website, including the e-brochure specific to the search.

If you have questions, please feel free to let us know. Enjoy your weekend.
