Provost search begins
Stan McKenzie, now in his 14th year as provost, is stepping down and will return to teaching. The search for a new provost is being led by Paul Rosenberg, a professor in the chemistry department in the College of Science.
The 16-member committee, which includes faculty, staff, students and trustees, will conduct a national and international search. The new provost will be named in the spring.
McKenzie has worked at RIT for 41 years, serving in a variety of roles including professor, director of judicial affairs, assistant to the provost, and acting dean of the College of Liberal Arts. He will return to the College of Liberal Arts where he will teach literature classes on Shakespeare, Twain and Tolkien, among other authors.
