Former Provost David Rosowsky has been named one of four finalists for a similar position at an Ohio university.

Rosowsky is in the running for the Provost and Executive Vice President for academic affairs at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio according to an April 26, 2019 report from the Miami Student.

Rosowsky announced that he would be stepping down from his current position at the University of Vermont at the end semester, to help ease incoming President Suresh Garimella have a smooth transition, according to a Feb. 25 email from Rosowsky. 

Effective April 15, UVM President Tom Sullivan named Patricia Prelock, Dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, the Interim Provost and Senior Vice President replacing Rosowsky.

In this potentially new position, Rosowsky would oversee all academics, research and chair the faculty senate at Miami University, according to the Miami Student.

Rosowsky and the other candidates will visit Miami University before the end of the semester, and a decision is expected to be made by the week of May 27, according to the Miami Student.
