President Delaney announced the retirement of UNF’s Provost, Earle Traynham, last Tuesday through a faculty-wide email.

Delaney indicated that he will consult with Radha Pyati, the president of the Faculty Association, and John White, the president of the UFF-UNF Union, in order to develop an interim provost search team.

According to Delaney, the process for selecting an interim provost will be structured yet informal, as the candidate will likely be selected from within.

“This search needs some structure due to the importance of the position,” said Delaney.

University provosts oversee and manage a university’s academic and budgetary affairs. Due to the nature of the work, a provost works closely with the president, setting academic priorities and allocating the funds to carry them out.

According to Delaney, Traynham possesses terrific management skills, which are crucial to this role.

He began working at UNF in 1973 when hired as an assistant professor of economics.

Traynham started working as interim provost after Delaney appointed him to the position in 2013. In 2015, he was offered the permanent position. Traynham decided to remain provost until summer 2017.
