Provost Search

Georgia Tech is conducting an international search for the next provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs. (The search follows the announcement that Provost Rafael L. Bras intends to step down on Sept. 1 and return to the faculty.) 

President Ángel Cabrera has named an 18-member advisory search committee comprised of faculty and staff, as well as students from the undergraduate and graduate student government associations. The committee will be co-chaired by Charles Isbell, dean of the College of Computing and Susan Lozier, dean of the College of Sciences.

Town Halls


Two town halls were held on March 9 and 10 for students, faculty, and staff to hear about the search process and provide feedback on the candidate considerations. Note: additional town halls will be planned for later in the semester as the search progresses.
