Kansas University is launching an internal search to find a new senior vice provost for academic affairs.
Barbara Romzek, who had been serving in the role on an interim basis, will return to full-time scholarship. Romzek has also served in the past as KU’s interim dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and is a former chairwoman of KU’s department of public administration.
Romzek became interim vice provost in August 2009, and was promoted to interim senior vice provost in the fall of 2010.
She will stay in the role until Aug. 31 to help the new senior vice provost transition into the person’s new responsibilities.
