After more than 10 months of searching, USF Provost Renu Khator will announce her successor today as dean of USF’s largest college.
Khator left her post officially as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences in February when USF President Judy Genshaft announced her as the next provost. A committee was formed the search for a new dean as one of Khator’s first official jobs as provost. The search committee included faculty members, different department chairs, a graduate student and a community member. USF conducted a nationwide search.
Interviews with five finalists for the College of Arts and Sciences dean began in late September. The college includes more than 17,000 students and 500 faculty members.
Kathleen Heide, who took over as interim dean last fall when Khator became interim provost, is among the five finalists. The other finalists include: John Skvoretz, interim dean of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of South Carolina; Mary Jane Hurst, associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Texas Tech; Kathleen Dewalt, director of the Center of Latin American Studies at the University of Pittsburgh; and James Rigby, chairman of the department of chemistry at Wayne State.
Khator will make the announcement at 2 p.m. in the Provost Conference Room in the Administration Building, Room 226.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
