Update on Search for New Provost

Contributed by Peggy Williams on 01/22/2007 

Following up on my notice to the campus community on January 3 regarding the resignation of Peter Bardaglio, and after extensive consultation with many individuals, I have decided to conduct a Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs search this spring. We have engaged the firm of Academic Search to assist us. The president of the firm, Dr. Jamie Ferrare, will be our consultant. He is quite familiar with Ithaca College and with the work the firm has done for us in recent years.

Jamie plans to visit the College in early February to gather input for the search. I will be putting a search committee together that will be representative of the College community. Our timetable is to complete the search by the end of the spring semester, so that we have a new Provost/VPAA on board prior to the start of the next academic year.

I expect to have an announcement soon regarding interim plans for the office. In the meantime, I appreciate your continued support for those who are carrying on the important work of the academic affairs division as we begin the new semester.

Peggy R. Williams
President

Is all matter in the universe actually composed of inconceivably tiny filaments of vibrating energy? One of the most exciting scientific adventures of all time is the search for the ultimate nature of physical reality. In the past century this hunt has yielded relativity and quantum mechanics, two theories that radically altered our picture of space, time, gravity, and the fundamental building blocks of matter. The latest theory in that venture is called Superstring Theory. It seeks to resolve some of the surprising discrepancies between relativity and quantum mechanics.
