February 12, 2009 — A search committee has been formed and will begin a national search for Northwestern Health Sciences University’s new provost.
The provost provides oversight for the academic programs at Northwestern, the institution’s research efforts, and the university’s clinic system.
“The person hired for the position will be a good communicator; someone who can build consensus through their leadership,” says Mark Zeigler, DC, president of Northwestern. “We’re looking for someone fair-minded and progressive, with an understanding of natural healthcare, and appreciation of current trends as they relate to the profession. The individual will be well-versed in higher education as it relates to natural care, and will bring their own perspective of how higher education trends are currently taking place to gain the best outcome.”
Zeigler stated he would like to have someone hired by the summer trimester, or sooner. The job description and qualifications have been determined, and the search committee meets each week to establish progress.
For any questions or additional information on the search, contact William Elkington, DC, professor at Northwestern and chair of the search committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
