If You Want to be a Creative Leader, Cultivating Curiosity is a Good Start
1-12-21 Weekly Three
As the Spring 2021 semester begins, my leadership team and I have clarified our vision of how to organize the Office of the Provost more effectively to support the work of Academic Affairs and to align with important recommendations in the MiamiRISE strategic plan. When I arrived, we had four associate provosts: one (1) for research and graduate studies (which has now been split into our VPRI, Alicia Knoedler, and our Dean of the Graduate School, Mike Crowder), one (1) for our regional campuses who also serves as Dean of CLAAS, Cathy Bishop-Clark, and Carolyn Haynes and Jeff Wanko, who did not have clear portfolios but merely did everything else that needed to be done. Last summer we also added a Special Assistant to the Provost, Dana Cox whose role focuses on faculty affairs.
