Reminder: Vice provost for graduate education and dean of Graduate School candidate open forum today

Submitted by Office of the Provost

Vice provost for graduate education and dean of Graduate School candidate Rose Marie Ward, professor and interim associate provost and dean of the Graduate School at Miami University, will virtually present an open forum from 1-2 p.m. today, Wednesday, Aug. 5. 

K-Staters are encouraged to participate in the virtual open forum and Q&A session titled "The Future of Graduate Education at a 21st Century Land-Grant University: Opportunities and Challenges." Search committee chair Dean Amit Chakrabarti will moderate the virtual open forum. Questions for the candidate may be submitted in advance via email to Chakrabarti at amitc@k-state.edu or asked live during the virtual open forum using the chat feature. 

The virtual open forum may be accessed through the Office of the Provost search website at k-state.edu/provost/about/searches/. For those unable to participate live, the virtual open forum will be archived on the provost's search website. Application materials, itinerary and online feedback survey is available on that website. Please be prepared to enter your K-State eID and password to access the information. The feedback survey will close at 5 p.m. two days following the candidate's virtual interview and the presentation will be removed from the website at that time. 

Oral or written feedback on the candidates may also be directed to members of the search committee. Please provide feedback no later than Thursday, Aug. 13.
