In addition to Vice Provost Diedrichs, the other committee members are:

In addition, Associate Vice Provost Stephen C. Myers will manage the day-to-day operations of the Office of Outreach and Engagement until a vice provost is hired.

I look forward to meeting with the committee members to give them their charge and to launch the search.  Vice Provost Diedrichs and the search committee will develop a position description and solicit nominations for the vice provost for outreach and engagement.
