MSU Provost Steps Down to Work With African Non-Profit

Posted:

Michigan State University Provost Kim Wilcox has announced he will be stepping down to work for a non-profit dedicated to help hunger and poverty in Africa.

The official switch won't begin until July 1, 2013, but Wilcox will begin work with the Partnership to Cut Hunger and Poverty in Africa at the first of the year. Senior Associate Provost June Youatt will be named acting provost.

Wilcox came to East Lansing as provost in August 2005 from the University of Kansas.

"With MSU's deep and established roots in Africa, I am excited to work with the Partnership to Cut Hunger and Poverty in Africa and help position that organization for future success," Wilcox said in a press release.

Wilcox also has served as chairperson of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation since 2011 and recently was elected chairperson of the Council on Academic Affairs of the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities.
