By Jackie Todd, office of Media Relations

The first of three candidates for the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost position spoke to a packed auditorium in Tuesday’s open campus forum. Robert Jones of West Virginia University shared information about his background, experience and strategies and answered questions from faculty, staff and students. For those who were unable to attend in person, the forum was streamed online.

Two other candidates will be on campus to present their qualifications and engage with the Clemson family. Candidate Sheryl Tucker, from Oklahoma State University, is scheduled to appear on July 10 and Gregory Crawford, from the University of Notre Dame, will present on July 15. Each forum will be held in the Lee Hall No. 2 auditorium, Room 2-111, from 9 to 10:15 a.m.

The forums will be streamed online on the finalist page of Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost website. This page requires a log in with your Clemson ID and password. The page will also offer visitors a chance to give feedback on each of the candidates.

University faculty and staff who have questions for the finalists but cannot attend the forums can send their questions before and during the forums to jtodd3@clemson.edu.

Candidates will also participate in a series of informal drop-in meetings. Visit the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost website for drop-in meeting times, candidate bios and other information.
