New Provost for IU-Bloomington

Last updated on Thursday, June 28, 2012

(BLOOMINGTON) - Starting July 1, Lauren Robel will officially become IU-Bloomington’s executive vice president and provost.

Robel is replacing former Provost Karen Hanson, who left for the University of Minnesota this year.

Robel has served as the interim provost since Hanson's departure on Feb. 1.

"Lauren was the enthusiastic and unanimous choice of the search committee, which was impressed with her vision, impeccable academic credentials, passion for students and her collaborative working style," President McRobbie said when announcing
the appointment.

While interim provost, Robel has worked to strengthen programs to support women on the Bloomington campus, begun an examination of retention programs for minority students and reached out to hear the concerns of student protesters.
