Senior Vice Provost for Academic Strategy and Resource Management
Memo from the Provost
Date: April 29, 2013
To: University Leaders
From: Warwick A. Arden, Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor
Subject: Senior Vice Provost for Academic Strategy and Resource Management
NC State has undertaken and progressed on several significant strategic academic initiatives over the last year. Many of these initiatives, including the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, the implementation of the College of Sciences and the Academic Program Planning and Review process, have been led primarily by Dr. Duane Larick, senior vice provost for strategic initiatives.
In recognition of the need to sustain an ongoing academic focus during the implementation of the University’s Strategic Plan, I am pleased to announce that I have appointed Dr. Larick to serve as senior vice provost for academic strategy and resource management, effective May 1, 2013. This is a permanent position that replaces the senior vice provost for strategic initiatives position.
Dr. Larick will oversee the Office of Academic Strategy and Resource Management, which will provide the strategic planning and resource management necessary to support continued successful implementation of the University’s Strategic Plan. Additionally, he will continue to have oversight for the following units: Enrollment Management and Services, International Affairs, Institute for Advanced Analytics, and Interdisciplinary Programs (Biotechnology Program, STEM Initiative).
Dr. Larick will be stepping down as dean of the Graduate School, a role he has served in since 2009. Many thanks to Dr. Rebeca Rufty who has agreed to continue to serve as interim dean. I am initiating a national search to identify the next dean of the Graduate School and a search committee will be appointed and announced soon.
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Larick and supporting him in this new appointment.
