President Whitten initiates searches to fill key leadership roles

BLOOMINGTON – Indiana University is launching national searches for four key leadership positions.

With search committee leaders named, a dedicated website is available both to support the search efforts and to keep the IU community informed. Opportunities for input during the search process will also be available on the website.

Open positions and respective hiring chairs:

  • Executive Vice President and Chancellor, IUPUI (Chair: Karen E. Bravo, Dean, IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law)
  • Executive Vice President and Provost, IU Bloomington (Chair: Fred H. Cate, Vice President for Research)
  • Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (Chair: Jay L. Hess, Dean, IU School of Medicine, and Executive Vice President for University Clinical Affairs)
  • Vice President for Communications and Marketing (Chair: Jacqueline Simmons, Vice President and General Counsel)

As part of the comprehensive searches, each chair will be supported by a search committee, with listening sessions planned to gather input from a cross section of the IU community. Invitations for the sessions will be directed to designated groups that have special interests related to the respective searches, including students, faculty, staff and others in the IU community.

Stay informed on the executive searches through the website and in future issues of IU Today, IU Bloomington Today and IUPUI Today (formerly Inside IU, Inside IU Bloomington and Inside IUPUI).
