Provosts Search Update: Finalists Named and Interview Open Forums

Tuesday, November 23, 2021

A Message from Isis Artze-Vega, Provost and Vice President, Academic Affairs

In last week’s Provosts Search Update, we shared that in late October, 71 candidates for our five provosts positions were invited to participate in an asynchronous digital interview via HireVue. Our search committee has identified 15 finalists who will participate in a set of virtual interviews and a tour of our campus locations. The candidates will meet first with the search committee, then in a series of forums for faculty, staff, deans and students.

You’re invited to participate in our Finalist Interview Open Forums during the week of Monday, November 29 through Friday, December 3, 2021, to get to know the candidates and provide feedback. For faculty members, we will also host a Faculty Forum for each candidate.

Recognizing that there are many candidates, many meetings and many recordings, we have created a Finalists page on our Provost Search site so that you can find all of the information, including Zoom links and recordings, in an easy-to-access format. On this site, you’ll also find the finalists’ letters of interest and curriculum vitae for your review.

Feedback from the College community is a critical component of a successful search process, and your insights are needed by the search committee. Please complete the following Qualtrics survey with your feedback on each candidate. The survey will open on the morning of Monday, November 29, 2021, and will close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, December 10, 2021.

Following the finalist interviews, I will review the feedback from the College community and insights from the search committee and advisory committee to make a final decision.

Thank you to the members of the search committee, advisory committee, and those supporting the search process for their deep engagement in this search.

If you have any questions about the search process, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly at, or Carla McKnight, vice president, organizational development and human resources, at or 407-582-1756.
