Like with the presidential search in 2016 and 2017, a search committee including Wright State administrators, faculty and students will consider provost candidates. The committee will be led by faculty senate president Travis Doom and WSU trustee and Fifth Third Bank executive Stephanie Green, according to the university.
Together the search firm and committee will host a forum on the provost search at 9:30 a.m. Friday in the student union's apollo room. The forum will be streamed live on Wright State's website.
Outgoing provost Tom Sudkamp announced in December that he would step down from his position on June 30. He was appointed provost for a three year term in 2015 under then-president David Hopkins, who resigned abruptly in March as the university struggled to deal with its budget problems.
Wright State trustees slashed more than $30.8 million from the school’s budget in June as an attempt to begin correcting years of overspending.
