This week, the campus community is invited to meet the five candidates for Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at scheduled online forums. Learn more about today’s candidate below, and view the complete schedule of open forum sessions online.
John Buckwalter, 1:30 p.m. on April 6
Buckwalter is the Betty L. Tointon endowed dean of the College of Health and Human Sciences at Kansas State University, as well as a professor in the department of kinesiology. Buckwalter holds a doctoral degree in kinesiology from the University of Arkansas.
At the forums, each candidate will present for 15-20 minutes in response to a prompt from the search committee, followed by one hour of question-and-answer with the moderator. Due to time and formatting constraints, questions are being collected in advance and may be submitted online. There will be a limited opportunity for each candidate to address questions submitted live. Sessions will be recorded, and information will be shared on how to view the recordings following the final candidate presentation. Candidate feedback is requested by Tuesday, April 20 at 5 p.m.
