Kansas University has appointed two associate vice provosts for student success: Lori Reesor and Frank DeSalvo. They will begin the new positions this summer.
Reesor comes to KU from the University of Missouri-Kansas City, where she is associate dean of education and an assistant professor.
DeSalvo has been KU's special assistant to the vice provost during the last year on an interim basis. DeSalvo has been director of Counseling and Psychological Services at KU since 1991. Vice Provost Marlesa Roney has named Pam Botts, clinical director of CAPS, to serve as its interim director. A national search will be launched soon.
DeSalvo succeeds Rich Morrell, who recently was named vice president for student affairs at Central Missouri State University.
Reesor and DeSalvo will join Associate Vice Provost Kathryn Nemeth Tuttle and Roney in heading Student Success.
