Faculty and Staff - November 17, 2023

Happy Garnet and Gold Friday! 

Hats off to our Provost Search Committee led by VP of Student Affairs Shelia Burkhalter and VP of Enrollment Management and Marketing Joseph Miller. The seven-member team brought a great slate of finalists forward for our consideration. They have my great appreciation for moving this search along and doing an exceptional job getting us to this point in the process.  

Thank you also to those who earlier this week met with and/or attended the public presentations of the four finalists. You may complete surveys on each one via the Provost Search website. I would appreciate your feedback no later than close of business on Monday, November 27. If you were unable to attend the public presentations, you can view recordings of them on the Provost Search website, where you may also find detailed information on all of the finalists. 

This is a key position for Winthrop’s leadership team, and I thank you in advance for your feedback.
