Dear UT Community,
As you know, our Vice President for Research Daniel Jaffe has been serving as Provost ad interim since the spring, providing strong leadership and vision for the university. Dr. Jaffe is expecting to return to his VP role in the coming months, which has always been his plan.
Accordingly, I will launch the search for our next Executive Vice President/Provost immediately. Information about nominating individuals to serve on the Provost Search Committee will be sent shortly.
While he still has months more of service as interim facing him, please join me in thanking Dan for his hard work, dedication and partnership during a very difficult year. I look forward to his continued service to the university.
