Monash U’s popular provost

Monash U provost Marc Parlange is reported the last candidate standing for president of the University of Rhode Island (“go rams”) after the other front-runner withdrew

Professor Parlange is a Rhody native son, although Connecticut, Washington state and Queensland can also claim him as their own.

What reads like a pitch for the job, as reported by Donita Naylor in The Providence Journal is here.

Professor Parlange joined Monash U from the University of British Columbia in June 2017.

CMM messaged him yesterday asking for a comment on the URI job but alas, he did not reply.
