Kansas University’s engineering dean is a finalist for the executive vice chancellor and provost position at Louisiana State University, according to a posting on LSU’s website.
Stuart R. Bell became dean at the engineering school in 2002. He previously served as the head of the department of mechanical engineering at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
He is among four finalists. The others: Bobby Schnabel, dean of the School of Informatics at Indiana University; Kevin Carman, dean of the College of Science at LSU; and Michael J. O’Brien, dean of the College of Arts and Science at the University of Missouri.
Bell is scheduled to make a campus visit next week, and the university hopes to have a new provost in place by July.
