Scott Coltrane announced as first candidate for UO provost

According to an email sent by University president Michael Gottfredson to the campus community early Tuesday afternoon, Scott Coltrane is the first candidate to be recognized in the search for a replacement provost.

Coltrane has served as interim provost since July 2013 when former provost Jim Bean stepped down from the position.

As one of four candidates being considered for the position, Coltrane will host a public presentation in the JSMA Ford Lecture Hall on Monday, Jan. 13 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. to address the University population. The president encourages community members to attend the presentation and provide online feedback on Coltrane’s qualifications and performance.

Information on the remaining three candidates has yet to be released.
