UW names Cauce new provost

Ana Mari Cauce, the dean of the University of Washington’s College of Arts & Sciences, will become the next provost of the university, President Michael Young announced Tuesday.

Young had earlier named Cauce his top candidate for the job, which is the second-highest-ranking post at the university. The appointment is subject to approval from the UW’s Board of Regents, which meets next on Dec. 15. She will start the job January 2.

Cauce will be in charge of academic programs and the budget, and will make $405,000.

Born in Cuba, Cauce and her family went into exile after Castro’s revolution. She grew up in Florida, where she went to the University of Miami for her undergraduate degree, and received graduate degrees at Yale University.

She started as a UW assistant professor of psychology in 1986 and moved up to eventually chair the department. She also served as executive vice provost between 2005 and 2008, and she has been dean of the College of Arts & Sciences for three years.
