(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - The University of Alaska Southeast announced yesterday the appointment of Ketchikan Campus Director Dr. Priscilla Schulte as UAS Interim Provost for the coming academic year. A search for a permanent Provost is slated to commence in August.

“I personally am very grateful for Dr. Schulte’s willingness to take on this assignment. I know that she will serve UAS well as Interim Provost. I also know that she will ensure that the good work of Ketchikan Campus faculty and staff will continue during the interim. I am committed to supporting her and Ketchikan personnel in fulfilling that expectation,” said Chancellor Rick Caulfield.

Dr. Schulte will begin her new assignment on August 9, 2015. According to a news release, she is expected to remain in the role through the 2015-2016 academic year "with a hope that a new provost will be on board in early summer 2016".

Dr. Schulte will remain Ketchikan Campus Director but she will move to Juneau for the duration of this assignment. She will continue to return to Ketchikan periodically over the course of the academic year. In her interim role, Dr. Schulte will represent the University of Alaska Southeast in important leadership venues including Board of Regents and Summit Team meetings and Statewide Academic Council.

UAS faculty, deans and directors expressed support for this arrangement—noting Dr. Schulte’s long and distinguished career at UAS as a tenured full professor, an active researcher, and most recently a highly-effective campus director.
