Provost Announcement: Search for Associate Provost and Chief of Staff

Dear Faculty and Staff,

As I indicated in a previous email, I am creating a new position in my office called the Associate Provost and Chief of Staff. This person will be a high-level advisor to me and a participant in the wide-ranging work of academic affairs, including initiatives and special projects, budget, and the myriad other issues that arise in the Provost’s office. This is a great opportunity for a faculty member, or staff member with a terminal degree, who wants to participate directly in the administrative leadership of UIC. The executive director of Extended Campus will report to the Associate Provost, and there is the possibility of other direct reports as well. The Vice Provosts will continue to report directly to me.

Dean Astrida Tantillo has graciously agreed to chair the search committee for this position. The other members of the committee are Rosa Cabrera, Kelcie Gauen, Gerald Smith, Renee Taylor, Katherine Vincent, and Rob Winn. The job description will be available at the campus job board and is also on the provost’s website: https://adminsearches.uic.edu/associate-provost-chief-of-staff/. Applications are due on January 12, 2017. The position is open to UIC faculty and staff with a terminal degree and will be for a three-year renewable term.

Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
