Re:         Interim provost

I am pleased to inform you that Laurel Weldon, professor of political science and interim vice provost for faculty affairs, will serve as interim provost during June 1-30.

Weldon will assume responsibility from Tim Sands, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost, who becomes president of Virginia Tech University on June 1.

On July 1, Debasish "Deba" Dutta, currently associate provost and dean of the Graduate College at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will become the University's next provost.
