Search Committee Named for ASU VP/Provost

December 04, 2012

An 11-member search committee has been named by Angelo State University President Brian J. May to make recommendations for a new provost and vice president for academic affairs by May 1. 

Dr. Javier Flores, vice president for student affairs and enrollment management, and Dr. Andrew Siefker, assistant professor of mathematics and president of the ASU Faculty Senate, will co-chair the search committee.

Other ASU committee members are Dr. Heather Braden, assistant professor of physical therapy, Department of Nursing and Rehabilitation Sciences, College of Health and Human Services; Suzie Dusek, academic advisor, College of Business; Doug Fox, associate vice president for information technology and chief information officer; Dr. Richard Lawrence, assistant professor of management information systems, Management and Marketing Department, College of Business; Dr. June Smith, professor of communication, Department of Communication, Mass Media and Theatre, College of Arts and Sciences; Dr. Paul Swets, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences; and Dr. David Tarver, professor of curriculum and instruction, College of Education.

Search committee members from the Texas Tech University System are Regent Nancy Neal and Dr. Joseph C. Rallo, vice chancellor for academic affairs.

President May said, “The search committee provides strong representation from across campus and from the Texas Tech System.  The committee is charged with conducting a national search to identify candidates best suited to advancing Angelo State University’s academic and growth goals.”

The provost position came open Nov. 7 when May, who had served in the post since 2011, was named president.  Dr. Nancy Allen, vice provost for academic affairs, is filling the position in an interim capacity until a successor is named.

The search process will include a review of the job description for the position that serves as ASU’s chief academic officer and is second in command to the president.  The position will be advertised nationally after Dec. 1 with a subsequent review by the director of human resources to confirm that the applicant pool is sufficiently deep and diverse to merit interviews.

The top candidates will be invited to campus for interviews during the spring semester.  A successful search will result in an offer being extended to the finalist by May 1.
