Goucher College has named its first provost, Marc M. Roy of Coe College in Iowa, in a process that drew more than 100 applications, school officials said in a statement released yesterday.
Roy, expected to begin the job in June, also will serve as Goucher's chief academic officer. He is Coe College's vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty.
As Goucher's provost, Roy will be the school's second-highest ranking administrator and will direct its academic program.
In selecting its first provost, the college convened a committee made up of faculty, students, staff and trustees. The panel narrowed the pool of 102 applicants to nine semifinalists. Three finalists visited the campus in October and last month.
"Marc is an accomplished biologist, a master teacher, a productive researcher, an experienced administrator, and a citizen of the world," Sanford J. Ungar, Goucher's president, said in a statement. Roy "will help us integrate our new study-abroad requirement into our curriculum."
