Frostburg State University (MD), a 5,200-student public, four-year university of the University System of Maryland, invites inquiries, nominations, and applications for the position of Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs (Provost). The next provost at Frostburg State University will have significant impact on the campus, in the community and in the region.
Reporting to President Ronald Nowaczyk, the Provost is the chief academic officer of the University, responsible for providing leadership for the core academic mission of the university, including enrollment and retention. The Provost oversees the Colleges of Business, Education, and Liberal Arts and Sciences as well as the offices supporting faculty affairs and the student academic experience from recruitment and admission through graduation.
A regional, rural institution located less than three hours from Washington, DC, Baltimore and Pittsburgh, the City of Frostburg has a population of about 9,000 full-time year-round residents. Frostburg students enjoy modern facilities including a state-of-the-art science center, outstanding physical education and performing arts centers and traditional and apartment-style housing clustered around spacious, student-friendly quads.
Frostburg enjoys a strong sense of community, and the next provost at Frostburg will work collaboratively with dynamic teams in the Cabinet and among the deans, and with a faculty deeply committed to students, to provide leadership and stability and, ultimately, to make decisions to ensure that the University delivers a strong and relevant educational experience for a racially diverse student body on a campus in the rural region of Western Maryland.
