Announcement From the Chancellor's Desk
Vice Provost Dr. James Everett to serve as Interim Provost
I am pleased to announce that Vice Provost Dr. James Everett has agreed to serve as Interim Provost beginning May 1, 2008.
In keeping with my announcement in February about the succession plan for the Provost’s Office, Dr. Everett will serve as Interim Provost until a new Provost is appointed in March/April 2010.
Dr. Stell will continue with UAS in a supporting role through the UAS Reaccreditation and Self Study period of 2009. Her knowledge of the institution and the accreditation process will be a significant contribution to this vital period for UAS.
Dr. Everett brings more than 25 years of experience in teaching, research, and academic management in the US and Australia.
“While following the enormous contributions of Dr. Stell is a daunting task, I very much look forward to serving UAS in the role of Interim Provost. My experience over the last 6 months with the Deans and other academic staff here at UAS suggests a promising opportunity to work with the faculty to build a bright and sustainable future for UAS and its academic programs,” he said.
During the month of April, Dr. Everett worked with Dr. Stell to formally transfer the processes and responsibilities of the Office of the Provost to ensure an effective transition.

Feel free to contact Dr. Everett or me if you have any questions.
