Ex-KU provost Richard Lariviere likely to head Field Museum

A former Kansas University provost who was ousted as president of the University of Oregon last fall is in line to become director of the Field Museum in Chicago, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Richard W. Lariviere served as KU’s chief academic officer from 2006 to 2009, a position he took after leaving his job as dean of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Texas-Austin.

He left his job at KU to become the University of Oregon’s president but was ultimately asked to leave that position after he broke with the state’s university governing board on several issues.

Lariviere’s appointment is still subject to approval from the museum’s board, the Tribune reported last weekend.
