Candidates for YSU Provost face open forums this week

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Now that Jim Tressel is President of Youngstown State University , the efforts begin this week to narrow down the field of candidates who want to lead and coordinate academic departments and programs at YSU.

Open forums for the four finalists for the position of provost/vice president for academic affairs at Youngstown State University will be held Sept. 2 through 5 in Tod Hall on the YSU campus.

Before he was appointed YSU President, Tressel said his selection of a provost would be based on input from the deans, faculty and others. At YSU, the provost provides leadership and coordination for academic departments and programs, colleges, accreditation, assessment, general education, the library, research, and international programs.

Tressel says that the university would have to gauge the strengths of the president to decide how duties would be divided between the president and the provost.

Two open forums have been scheduled with each finalist. Faculty, staff, students and members of the community are invited.

The forums will be in the Board of Trustees Meeting Room on the first floor of Tod Hall at 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on the following schedule:

•Tuesday, Sept. 2, David Starrett, Southeast Missouri State University.

•Wednesday, Sept. 3, Graham Glynn, Mercy College.

•Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014, Nathan Ritchey, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.

•Friday, Sept. 5, 2014, Cheryl Torsney, The University of Texas at El Paso.

The candidates' resumes are available here.
