Provost Candidates Visit Campus

The second of four finalists 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:

Sharon K. Hahs, Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Professor of Chemistry at Southern Illinois University , arrived in Springfield Wednesday, and will wrap up her visit Friday.

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. Hahs's public forum was held Thursday.

The other finalists include Belinda R. McCarthy, whose forum is scheduled for 4Pm Wednesday February 22nd; and Robert G. Frank, who will speak and answer questions at Plaster Theater at 4PM Monday February 27th.

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