Daniel Myers, former provost of Marquette, will head to Washington D.C. to serve as American University’s provost and chief academic officer, American University announced Dec. 17 in a news release. Myers will also be a professor of sociology at the university.

Myers’ new role will officially begin today, the day after spring classes began at American University.

“I am very excited to join the AU community,” Myers said in the news release. “I look forward to raising our research profile to enhance our scholarly impact and benefit the student experience.”

Myers will oversee all schools within the college and work on American University’s new strategic plan. When looking at candidates, American University’s president Sylvia Burwell said the university was looking for someone who was committed to elements of the strategy.

“Working in Washington to leverage and build the role of AU in the city and world is exciting,” Myers said in the release. “I am inspired to work with President Burwell on the realization of AU’s new strategic plan.”

Myers served as provost and executive vice president of academic affairs at Marquette from 2015 to 2018. He returned to faculty in November. Kimo Ah Yun is currently the acting provost at Marquette.
