Professor of Geology Pat Spencer to serve as Interim Provost and Dean of Faculty

President George Bridges announced today to the Whitman community that Pat Spencer, Professor and Chair of the Geology Department, will take up the position of Interim Provost and Dean of Faculty beginning on July 1, 2014. Spencer, who will replace current Provost and Dean of the Faculty Tim Kaufman-Osborn, will serve in this interim position until a permanent appointment is made.

In Bridges' email to college staff and faculty, he cited Spencer's experience, abilities and understanding of Whitman as valuable assets in this position.

“Like many others with whom I spoke, he is a person who listens well and prior to making decisions gives thoughtful and fair consideration to individuals and groups raising issues and concerns of a personal or professional nature,” Bridges said.
