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.
