Provost search committee schedules series of faculty forums
November 6, 2006
The committee searching for a new provost for Wake Forest University has scheduled a series of faculty forums in November.
The forums are designed to gather information from faculty regarding their aspirations for Wake Forest and the qualities they seek in a new provost. Wake Forest Provost William C. Gordon announced in October that he will step down as provost at the end of the 2006-2007 academic year, but he plans to remain at the university as a faculty member after taking a leave of absence.
The first forum will be held at 4 p.m. Nov. 7 for College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences faculty. It will take place in the Teaching and Learning Center in Z. Smith Reynolds Library.
Other forums include:
- Nov. 9, 4:30 p.m., Calloway School faculty, Kirby Hall, Room 117
- Nov. 13, 4:30 p.m., Babcock Graduate School faculty, Worrell Professional Center, Room 1108
- Nov. 16, 11 a.m., Divinity School faculty, Wait Chapel, Balcony Room
- Nov. 20, 4 p.m., College and Graduate School faculty, Scales Fine Arts Center, Room 102 (art department)
- Nov. 21, 4 p.m., School of Law faculty, Worrell Professional Center, Room 1319
- Nov. 28, 4:30 p.m., College department chairs, Greene Hall, Room 320
Chaired by Wake Forest President Nathan O. Hatch, the search committee is composed of representatives of each of the university’s academic units. During the search, the committee is working with a nationally recognized search firm to assist with identifying prospective candidates.
