Murray State University President Dr. Randy Dunn has appointed Dr. Jack Rose, faculty regent, to chair the Provost Search Committee, which will meet initially this month. The new provost may begin his or her duties as early as July 1, 2013, replacing Dr. Bonnie Higginson who announced her resignation effective June 30, 2013.
“I am pleased and honored to be a part of the search process for Murray State University’s next provost and vice president for academic affairs,” said Dr. Rose. “Dr. Bonnie Higginson has served MSU in an outstanding manner and will be sorely missed. President Dunn’s charge to the committee stated his desire to recruit the highest-level internal and external applicants who will demonstrate outstanding leadership to sustain the high standards of academic quality for which MSU is known. I am convinced the committee appointed by President Dunn is an outstanding group ready to work diligently to find folks who meet those qualifications.”
