Janie M. Fouke, Provost
I am pleased to announce that Dr. Joseph Glover, associate provost for academic affairs, has agreed to serve as interim dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, effective January 1, 2007.
Dr. Glover will be consulting with Dean Neil Sullivan during the next few weeks to assure a smooth leadership transition.
Dr. Glover’s relationship with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences dates back to 1982, when he was named an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics. He served as department chair from 1993 to 1998 and as associate dean for faculty affairs in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences from 1998 to 2001.
Since being named associated provost in 2001, his responsibilities include enrollment management, tenure and promotion, and faculty affairs. He chaired the Task Force on the Future of the University of Florida, participated in developing the university strategic plan, and represents UF on the Executive Board of the New World School of the Arts. From December 2004 through August 2005, Dr. Glover served as interim provost and senior vice president.
Dr. Glover has served on the Faculty Senate Constitution Committee since 2001 and was a member of the 2004 Joint Committee on Tenure and the 2003 Joint Task Force on Shared Governance.
A native of New York, Dr. Glover received his B.A. from Cornell University and his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego. He taught at the University of California, Berkeley and the University of Rochester before joining the University of Florida faculty. He also held an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship at UCSD in 1982. His awards include an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Mathematical Sciences, an NSF-CNRS Fellowship held at the Universite de Grenoble II, a CLAS Teaching Award, and a mentoring award from the McKnight Foundation.
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Glover to his new position.
