Earlier this year, a search committee, chaired by Dr. Dianne Olivier, and comprised of faculty, students, staff, and community leaders was established to facilitate the search for a Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. The committee has the important task of finding the best candidate to be the next provost of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. The committee will work with Academic Search to identify high quality and innovative candidates who could help guide the University through its strategic plan to achieve the University's vision and mission.
The objective is to move at a pace that will serve the best interests of this university, as well as provide a timely decision for all the candidates under consideration with the goal of having a new Provost in place by the 2017-2018 academic year. The search will be an inclusive and transparent selection process that allows the campus community to provide input on the academic achievements and essential characteristics of our next provost, and the opportunity to meet directly with the final candidates. The feedback from all members of the University community is essential for the process.
