The search for an Associate Provost of Student Success and College of Business, Information, and Social Sciences Dean began at Slippery Rock University earlier this semester, with interviews ending this week.

Provost and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs, Philip Way, realigned programs and services in order to merge two divisions, academic affairs and student affairs. The integration is to provide more and better programs and services efficiently, and creates the new title of associate provost for student success.

“Open positions that are posted are initiated by the hiring manager and go through a few levels of approval,” Holly McCoy said, assistant Vice President of diversity and equal opportunity. “The applications come back online and there’s a search committee that reviews them and selects candidates to interview.”

The position’s search committee has had six finalists come to campus for day and a half interviews from Feb. 12 through Feb. 25. The newly hired associate provost for student success is expected to begin in the summer of 2015.

The associate provost for student success will oversee academic services, retention services, special populations, residence life programming, and health and wellness.
