In mid-March of this year, after having selected Dr. David Garland to serve as Interim Provost and after having asked me to chair the Search Committee to assist in identifying Dr. Elizabeth Davis’s successor, President and Chancellor Ken Starr announced the Provost Search Committee. The selection of this Committee was no mean feat, given that there were over 150 different people nominated by the university community to serve in this capacity.
The Provost Search Committee is pleased to provide the following update to the campus community.
On February 6, 2014, a historic announcement was made – Dr. Elizabeth Davis, Baylor University’s Executive Vice President and Provost, was named Furman University’s twelfth President.
The committee will have as its aim to discover for our beloved university an unmistakably gifted scholar-administrator who can join us in advancing Baylor's aspirations under Pro Futuris as a university with very high research activity, while reaffirming and strengthening our distinctive Christian mission.
WACO, Texas (March 20, 2014)-- Baylor University President and Chancellor Ken Starr announced today the appointment of members of the University’s Provost Search Committee. The Committee is charged with leading the global search to identify the University’s next Provost.
Every year, the Baylor family pauses early in the spring semester to look back across the seventeen decades of our institution's glorious history. On a very special day, we gather in community to celebrate that historic first day of February — in 1845 — when Baylor University was chartered by the Republic of Texas.
With great anticipation, we eagerly look forward to the next chapter in Baylor's unfolding history as we commence the search for our next Provost.
