Purdue Names Interim Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs

July 1, 2013

Davenport Sypher is leaving to serve as the University of Cincinnati's chief academic officer. A committee is being formed to begin a national search for a permanent replacement, said Timothy Sands, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost.

"Laurel brings a wealth of Purdue knowledge and experience and a strong disciplinary and interdisciplinary background to her new role," Sands said. "Her interim appointment allows us to move forward seamlessly as we begin the national search for a permanent replacement for Beverly. I look forward to working with her during the next several months."
