Daudistel returns as interim provost

Junius Gonzales, former provost and vice president for academic affairs, announced in November his new job as senior vice president for academic affairs of all 17 campuses for the University of North Carolina, which will become effective Jan. 28.

Currently, Senior Executive Vice President Howard Daudistel is serving as interim provost and vice president for academic affairs until the position is filled.

This is not Daudistel’s first time serving as interim provost. He was interim provost in 2011 before Gonzales took the position.

Daudistel has been a part of the UTEP faculty and administration for more than 40 years. He has held various positions while at UTEP, such as dean of Liberal Arts, chair of the sociology and anthropology department, the social work department, the criminal justice department, interim chair of the department of communication, and assistant vice president for academic affairs.

There is no word yet on when the university will select a new provost, but UTEP officials have said it should take anywhere from six months to a year to search for a permanent provost.

UTEP officials said that this is all in an effort to find the best fit for the university.
