LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 1, 2024) — After an extensive search for a new Associate Provost for Academic Affairs at the University of Kentucky, four finalists will participate in campus forums and meetings. The outstanding finalists represent a diverse pool of candidates who will be engaging with the community in several ways. 

The first candidate will participate in an open forum at 1 p.m. Monday, March 4, in the Britt Brockman Senate Chamber in the Gatton Student Center. Members of the UK community are encouraged to attend and to provide feedback. Those who cannot attend in person may view the forum on Zoom.

The names and CVs of finalists will be made available only to the UK community 24 hours prior to the day of their forum on the search website.

Following each forum, a recording of the forum and a confidential online survey about the candidate will be made available on the search website for 48 hours. This provides members of our community the opportunity to assess strengths and areas of growth for each candidate. 

Supervisors are encouraged to work with their team members so they can participate in the open forums as much as is feasible. 

UK Provost Robert S. DiPaola announced a committee charged with conducting the search. He will make a selection after receiving feedback from the committee and campus.
