“We will be more sharply focused and distinctive.”
— Chancellor Dxight Smith

With oM bold gesture. DU wil enter the mainstream of
university gostranance this tall The University, like a growing number of institutions, is turning e a provost to prossde con-tin aits in academic and budgetary planning:
The provost, usually defined as the chief academic officer of an msMutiofl. nil he responsible for the coordination of academics and the budget as well as student allairs, admissions and financial aid. Final budgetary authority will remain with the chancellor.
The transition to a provost has been under consideration for several scan, but was delayed due to the reorganisation of the UnivtTsity. 'Attempting something lie this donng the reorganisation would have been one change too nuns' Chancellor Dwight Smith said.
The addition of a provost b etpected to help DU sharpen its coespetkne edge for the 21st Century '.Assurant we are successful in connecting budgeting uh academic planning, we will be an mstitnbon that hat much less a general broad image.' Smith said We will be more shatply focused and distinctive.'
Must faculty raembrn hope their say in the future of the Univmity win increase. 'Wha: we hope for from it b that academx- concerns are considered in every mayor decision the University makes.' Robert Richardson, professor of English and a member of the Provost Selection Committee, said "The faculty are concerned that they be fuBy in charge of educational policy, as they are at all good schools.'
The arrival of a provost should ebrainate much of the 'corporate' atmosphere of DU. Richardson said 'Education isn't a business. Were not just putting out a product Great schools just don't talk like dial'
The trend among private schools toward provost governance began in the 1960s. due in pan to the changing duties of university presidents Only AJ percent of the runout schools ate governed by a provost, but it is an impressive list Noethwesiern. Princeton. Stanford. Johns Hopkms. Brown and Vale, to came a few.
Thb has been happemat for a number of yean.' Irving Spitaberg general secretary of the Association of .Amman colleges, said. Tnisetsities are becoming cotnplei iastitubons Soch a senior academic prison allows for a vital division of duties
Robert Goheen. president of Princeton when a provost wav adopted there, agreed "The job of the president had developed too many aspects foe one person to handle. There was a need for a deputy who could share the load' 0»er the years, the posksoc has become invaluable.
Bockndl University, a private msauboc very similar to DU. will return to a provost this fall after an unsuccessful trial period on a different system. "The provost model was a good thing to follow It identified to the faculty very death who was the sensor officer for academe affairs. There was no ambcguity.' said
William W'eist. secretary of BoctndL who has been with the unnrrsity for 2$ you
The president in many small colleges assumes a tremendous toad. When the faculty have soeseooe identified as number two. they an forgne the president kb inability to get tmo academx affairs. Went usd They know bn representative has authority and dom especially on thorny issues."
.At the heart of any structural change in the University is the welfare of the studrot body, although stedrots may not be aware of the difference. The changes immediately apparent to students wd] be the evolving academic foots of the school and the total feeling of well-being among faculty and staff. Rxhardsoo said 'If the academx voice b strong, then confidence and pode spread out to the test of the community'
