4th Provost Candidate Visits Campus

The fourth and last finalist for the position of Provost at Missouri State University is visiting the campus this week, meeting with administrators, faculty, staff, and students. KSMU's Mike Smith has the story

Robert Frank, Dean of the College of Public Health and Health Professions at the University of Florida in Gainesville, arrived in Springfield Sunday and will wrap up his visit today.

The process for hiring Missouri State's first full time Provost began in September with the appointment of a 14 member search committee which included Missouri State administrators, faculty, staff, students, and a member of the community.

Chris Craig, Associate Dean of the College of Education says the committee screened 40 applicants to select the four finalists who will each take part in on campus public question and answer forums at Plaster Student Union Theater. Franks public forum was held Monday.

At this point in the process, the the decision of who will be the Provost at Missouri State University belongs to President Michael Nietzel.

Missouri State's first Provost will begin work July 1st.

For KSMU News, I'm Mike Smith.
