Provost Gail Wells (pictured) recently decided to retire from her position to take on a less time consuming faculty position, as a way to spend more time with her family, according to an email sent by President Geoffrey Mearns Jan. 31.

President Geoffrey Mearns announced in an email today that Provost Gail Wells is retiring from her position on Jan. 1, 2014 and will then return to a faculty position.

Wells, who has been in the provost position for nine years, told Mearns she wants to “step up the faculty.” With the creation of a new strategic plan on the way, she told Mearns that there should also be a transition to an “academic leader who can commit to the long-term implementation of the plan.”

Until Jan. 1, 2014, the university will conduct a national search for Wells’ successor. Mearns said he will soon appoint a committee to assist in the search.
