SGA endorses Dean Miller for provost

The Student Government Association has formally endorsed Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Eleanor Miller for the new provost, SGA President Kofi Mensah said. Mensah wrote a letter on behalf of the SGA to the Provost Search Committee on Nov. 16. Groups such as the SGA, the Graduate Student Senate (GSS) and the Faculty Senate were given the opportunity to ask both Miller and Interim Provost Jane Knodell questions, Mensah said. “Although we believe both candidates are highly qualified, Dean Miller presents a personality and working method that we believe is conducive to properly engaging with faculty, administration and students for collaborative means in moving the University forward,” the letter to the Provost Search Committee stated.
