Indiana University South Bend has named an interim chancellor. Jann Joseph, who currently serves as executive vice chancellor for academic affairs, will take on the role July 2.
She will succeed Terry Allison, who announced last month he would down as chancellor at the end of the academic year after five years in the role. Prior to joining IU South Bend, Joseph held leadership roles at Grand Valley State University in Michigan.
"Dr. Joseph is a dynamic leader and an ideal person to advance IU South Bend’s ambitious agenda," said John Applegate, executive vice president for university academic affairs at IU South Bend. "Her academic background and leadership experience will serve the campus well as we move toward IU’s bicentennial."
The university says the search for a permanent successor will begin this summer.
