Leading candidate for EVPP position invited back for additional discussion

May 19, 2009  

The top candidate for the position of executive vice president and provost will return to Ohio University on Thursday, May 28, for additional interviews with members of the administration and faculty.

Pam Benoit, vice provost for advanced studies and dean of the Graduate School, University of Missouri, received her doctorate in communication from Wayne State University in Detroit. She is the only one of the three finalists to be invited back.

Feedback collected after each candidate's participation in an open forum earlier this month focused on Benoit's strong communication skills, ability to connect with students and keen grasp of issues critical to Ohio University's future.

President Roderick J. McDavis formed a 14-member search committee earlier this year to find a successor to Kathy A. Krendl, who announced in December that she would step down as executive vice president and provost on June 30, 2009, to assume the presidency of Otterbein College, a private liberal arts school of about 3,100 students in Westerville, Ohio.

The preferred starting date for the selected candidate is July 1, 2009. To read more about the search, click here.
