UW dean named top candidate for provost

Ana Mari Cauce has been named the preferred candidate for provost at the University of Washington.

Cauce is currently the dean of the UW’s College of Arts & Sciences, the largest college on campus.

She replaces Phyllis Wise, who served as provost under former President Mark Emmert until Emmert’s departure to head the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

Wise stepped in as interim president, then returned to the provost’s job when Michael Young was made president of the UW. Shortly thereafter, Wise took the job of chancellor of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Young made the decision to appoint an internal candidate to the job, but raised a stir earlier this month when he told faculty members he did not want to make the list of final candidates for the provost position public.
