University at Albany Provost Search

A message from President Jones

As we embark on a national search for UAlbany's next Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, I look forward to working with a campus advisory committee comprised of faculty, staff, students and alumni representatives to manage such an important endeavor. I am committed to a transparent process, that will engage all facets of the campus community to identify the best candidate to continue to successfully advance the University's academic mission. You will note the aggressive timeframe outlined below. It is my intention to move this process efficiently towards successful completion in order to transition this important team member in time for the Spring 2015 semester.
