Four finalists to be interviewed for the position of vice provost for undergraduate studies

By Michelle Langvardt

Four finalists have been identified for the position of vice provost for undergraduate studies.

The candidates are: Gregory Eiselein, professor of English at Kansas State University; José Herrera, program director, National Science Foundation; Steven Dandaneau, associate provost and director, Chancellor’s Honors and Haslam Scholars Programs at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville; and Mark Amos, associate provost and dean of University College, at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale.

The schedule of candidates will be:
•Eiselein: April 30–May 2
•Herrera: May 2-4
•Dandaneau: May 6-8
•Amos: May 8–10

Each candidate will participate in a public forum scheduled for 2:30 to 4 p.m. on May 1, 3, 7, and 9 in the Hemisphere Room of Hale Library. The topic for the open forums will be: "Through K-State 2025, the university community has engaged in charting the future of our institution. Address your vision for the undergraduate experience at K-State, requirements to implement that vision and how you will define and measure success."

For those unable to attend in person, the presentations will be streamed live and archived for viewing later. The link for the public forum will be activated just before the scheduled start time and is posted on the provost's website with the full schedules, application materials for each candidate and the survey to provide feedback on each candidate.
