Provost/Senior Vice President

TSU President Dr. Lesia L. Crumpton-Young has appointed a search committee under the leadership of Dr. Lillian Poats to pursue the search for the next Provost/Senior Vice President. You may note the published profile for the position either on our website or on the search page of AGB Search, which was hired to facilitate and support the work of the search committee. We are in the open application phase of the process which will lead to the selection of a group of semifinalists by the end of August. While those interviews are confidential and limited to the search committee members, campus visits and interviews by at least three finalists for the position will be conducted during the week of September 26. This will be an opportunity for the campus community to meet the candidates, hear their viewpoints, review their credentials and provide feedback on each candidate. Selection of the next Provost/Senior Vice President is likely to occur during the week of October 3.
