Four Provost Candidates To Visit UHD

Dear UHD Community:

The Provost Search Committee is pleased to announce that we have invited four candidates for the position of Senior Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs and Provost for on-campus visits.

At the recommendation of UHD President Dr. Juan Sánchez Muñoz, we have scheduled two separate open forums for each candidate to allow UHD faculty, staff, and students a better opportunity to visit with each candidate. You may attend one or both of the open forums for each candidate as your schedule allows.

I will be sending Outlook calendar requests in the next 48 hours for each open forum to allow you to put the forum schedules on your Outlook calendars.

The names of the four candidates, the date of their individual visit, the time and location of their open forums with the campus, and links to their Curricula Vitae are listed below for your convenience:
