The search committee for Purdue University’s next provost has narrowed the list to three finalists after having reviewed the credentials of 10 applicants. The person selected for the job will succeed current Provost Jay Akridge, who announced he will step down and return to his faculty position in the College of Agriculture.
The three finalists include:
- Eric Barker, Dean of the College of Pharmacy
- Marion Underwood, Dean of the College of Health and Human Sciences
- Patrick Wolfe, Dean of the College of Science
Purdue says the three finalists will make on campus presentations during a series of open forums from Dec. 7-9.
The schedules will allow them to meet with faculty, students, staff and other leaders at the university
