CASPER, Wyo. —  The University of Wyoming has announced that Kate Miller, provost and vice president for academic affairs at the university, will step down from the position at the end of June.

“We express our appreciation to Dr. Miller for her service to the university and the state,” Acting President Neil Theobald says.

Miller has been UW’s chief academic officer since August 2016, coming to Wyoming after serving as dean of the College of Geosciences at Texas A&M University. Among other accomplishments, she helped spearhead UW’s “grand challenges” task force; led the university’s strategic enrollment management effort; and developed UW’s current academic program review process.

The move will be official on June 30, 2020

Ed Seidel, UW’s incoming president, will consult with university stakeholders to consider candidates and select an acting vice president for academic affairs to take the position July 1.

That person will serve until a new provost is selected.

A national search is planned to begin in September.
