Information about each of the searches and candidates will be posted daily on Around the O in the Workplace section and on the Office of the Provost Web page. The updates will also be included in the Monday and Thursday Around the O email to campus.

Provost Scott Coltrane is leading the search process and said the leadership hires will help shape the future of the institution and support the UO’s academic aspirations. Because there are so many candidates coming to campus in a short amount of time, he is urging faculty and staff who want to participate in the search process to check frequently for updates on Around the O.
