Second Provost Candidate Forum Today in M.I. King

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 24, 2013) ― The second of three University of Kentucky provost candidates to officially visit campus is Nancy W. Brickhouse, interim provost at the University of Delaware. She will participate in an open forum at 4 p.m. today, Wednesday, April 24, in the Great Hall on the second floor of the M.I. King Building.

The forum can also be seen on UKNow via live stream beginning at 4 p.m. (Requires Windows Media Player; Mac users may need to install Flip4Mac to view.)

The deans of the University of Delaware's seven colleges report directly to Brickhouse as do the vice president for Student Life and the vice provosts for Research, Graduate and Professional Education, Museums and Libraries. Delaware's student body encompasses more than 17,000 undergraduates, more than 3,600 graduate students and nearly 800 students in professional and continuing studies.

If capacity is reached at the forum site, an overflow room has been established in Room 205 of the Little Fine Arts Library, just across from M.I. King, where the live stream will be shown on a large screen.

During the forum, the candidate will speak briefly and then take written questions from the audience. A member of the search committee will serve as moderator to facilitate the forum.

Questions also can be submitted via email at or via twitter at UK’s news twitter account, @UKnewsroom, which is another place where you can follow the forums.

Any feedback to the search committee regarding the candidates should be submitted no later than 10 p.m. Friday, April 26. The video presentations will be archived and available on the Provost search website – – until Friday evening.
