Meet the Candidates for the Next CSU Provost

A message from committee chair Dr. John Finley:

On behalf of the CSU Provost search committee, I am very pleased to announce the names of the three candidates for CSU's Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Starting next week, the CSU community will have the opportunity to share in the process as the candidates interview with the various administrative leaders, faculty, staff and students of CSU. A procedure for feedback will be established so that your voice is heard.

Each of the three candidates will be making campus visits over the coming weeks according to the following schedule:

NOVEMBER 2-4: Dr. Jane McCandless, dean, College of Social Sciences at the University of West Georgia

NOVEMBER 6-8: Dr. Cheryl Torsney, former senior vice provost at the University of Texas at El Paso

NOVEMBER 9-11: Dr. Bradley Caskey, dean, College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls

There will be a website available for this search. It will contain the CVs of each candidate, a feedback section, and dates and times for each candidate's open forums. We are still in the process of securing room space and finalizing schedules. More details will be available soon.

Looking forward to your participation,
