Finalists for Provost and Senior Vice President

The Search Committee has identified five finalists for the position of Provost and Senior Vice President for the University of Houston-Downtown. Over the next two weeks, candidates will visit the University campus to meet with President Flores, faculty, administrators, students and staff. Visits will include an open forum in which candidates will make a presentation onthe collaboration between student affairs and academic affairs, particularly as it relates to enrollment management and student success. The candidates will also entertain questions from the University community.

For those faculty and staff who are unable to attend the open forum, information will be provided shortly about how to access the session through Blackboard and how to submit questions for the candidate.
