The university provost search will resume after a 10-month long delay, a university news brief announced Monday, following the finalizing of a new search committee.

University President Michael Lovell appointed John Su, English professor and director of the University Core of Common Studies, to chair the provost search committee. The new provost is slated to be announced no later than March 2015.

The committee will hold four listening sessions Sept. 22 to receive input from the university community on what it wants in its next provost.  The Division of Student Affairs is invited to a session at 10 a.m. in Alumni Memorial Union room 227, academic staff units are invited to a session at 12 p.m. in AMU 157, university faculty at 4 p.m. in AMU 227 and students at 5:30 p.m. in Raynor Memorial Libraries’ Beaumier Suites.

The search committee and Office of the President will also seek campus-wide input on their Opportunity and Challenge Profile.

The provost search committee notably features student representation with Kyle Whelton, Marquette Student Government president and senior in the College of Arts & Sciences, able to provide his input.

The rest of the search committee includes deans Richard Holz and Jeanne Hossenlopp, from the College of Arts & Sciences and Graduate School, respectively, Steve Frieder, assistant to the president and corporate secretary, John Mantsch, chair and professor of biomedical sciences, Cheryl Maranto, chair and associate professor of management, and James Marten, chair and professor of history. The committee also includes theology professor the Rev. David Schultenover, Lucas Torres, associate professor of psychology, and Peggy Troy, board of trustees member.

The university will continue using search firm Isaacson & Miller, which conducted the search for dean of the College of Arts & Sciences in 2012-13.

John Pauly, now a professor of journalism and media studies, vacated the provost position in May 2013 and was replaced on an interim basis by Margaret Callahan, the dean of the College of Nursing. The provost search started then, but was stalled due to former University President the Rev. Scott Pilarz leaving his post that September.
