Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs

Frostburg State University (MD), a 4,900-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. The campus is located just over two hours from Washington, DC, Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

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.

Frostburg enjoys a strong sense of community, and the next provost 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.

There are strong bonds between the campus and the City of Frostburg, which has a population of about 9,000 full-time year-round residents. The growth of Frostburg State University continues to be a major factor in Frostburg's economy.
