IU President Michael McRobbie plans to name an interim provost by the end of 2011, said Mark Land, associate vice president for University communications, in an email.

Once the interim provost is named, a search committee will be formed, Land said. This committee has the task of finding a suitable, permanent provost and making a recommendation to the president.

Current Provost and Executive Vice President Karen Hanson announced Oct. 10 she will leave her position at IU in January 2012 to be the University of Minnesota’s senior vice president of academic affairs and provost.

Hanson served at IU in various roles, including as a professor and as dean of the Hutton Honors College for 35 years and has been the provost and executive vice president since 2007. She graduated from University of Minnesota with bachelor’s degrees in philosophy and mathematics in 1970.

Land said there is currently no timetable for how long the search for a permanent provost will take.
