Monash U in the market for a provost

Marc Parlange is off to Uni Rhode Island

URI announced his appointment as president yesterday morning (AEST). CMM had previously reported Professor Parlange looked a certainty for the job. The URI Board of Trustees approved the appointment Monday.  He will leave Monash U in June.

Professor Parlange will notice more differences than the weather, Monash U has 85 000 students at 11 campuses and teaching venues, URI has 17 000 students at five.

Monash U VC Margaret Gardner says “staffing arrangements” for the provost position will be announced “in due course.”
