Provost search committee to host student listening session

Marquette University Student Government and the provost search committee will hold a student listening session for provost search committee on Monday, September 22 at 5:30 p.m. in Raynor Memorial Libraries’ Beaumier Suites.

As the primary academic leader at Marquette University, the provost plays an integral role in the academic experience of each student. In an effort to find the right candidate for the Marquette community, the search committee, chaired by Dr. John Su, has retained the search firm Isaacson, Miller, which conducted the search for the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences in 2012-13.

The search committee and Issacson, Miller, will host a series of listening sessions during the month of September in order to gain feedback from various constituencies across campus. Because the provost is central to the student’s academic life on campus, Marquette University Student Government strongly encourages students to attend the student session on Monday, September 22 and give feedback to the committee.

The provost search committee is chaired by Dr. John Su, professor of English and director of the University Core of Common Studies. Additional members include Steve Frieder, Dr. Richard Holz, Dr. Jeanna Hossenlopp, Janine Kim, Dr. John Mantsch, Dr. Cheryl Maranto, Dr. James Marten, Rev. David Schultenover, S.J., Dr. Lucas Torre, Peggy Troy and MUSG President Kyle Whelton. Whelton and Dr. Su will be the committee members present at the student listening session.

If you are unable to attend the listening session, you can still voice your feedback via an online input form. For more information on the provost search, visit
