UM: Provost

The New York Times reports that University of Michigan provost Phil Hanlon has been named president of Dartmouth College and will begin his tenure there in July of 2013. The article quotes Hanlon, a Dartmouth graduate, on how information technology and other issues are changing higher education: “A second change is the nature of the workplace, which is becoming more diverse, and a third thing that is changing is that the kind of issues the world is facing — the future of health care, transforming K-12 education, balancing the federal budget — are becoming more complicated.” Hanlon became UM provost in 2010, replacing Teresa Sullivan, who left to become president of the University of Virginia.
