NMU Provost Candidates

Four candidates vying to become Northern Michigan University’s next provost and vice president for academic affairs have been invited to campus next week for interviews.

University staff are still arranging the schedule and will release it once it’s done.

David Dauwalder, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at the University of New Haven in Connecticut, is one of the finalists.

Lance Grahn, who was most recently provost and dean of faculty/vice president for academic affairs at the University of Central Arkansas, is the second.

The third is Patrick Guilfoile, interim associate vice president of academic affairs at Bemidji State University in Minnesota.

Barbara Keinath, vice provost and dean of graduate studies at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, Minnesota is the final candidate.

A provost is the top academic administrator at a college or university and reports directly to the president.

At NMU, the position provides day-to-day operational and strategic management, as well as leadership that champions the growth and development of both academic and student services programs according to the university’s mission.
