Announcement from Chancellor Everts and Provost Gonzalez

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Dear Colleagues:

Lori Gonzalez is stepping down as Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor for Appalachian State University to assume the role of Special Assistant to the Chancellor effective October 11, 2014.

“I would like to thank Lori for her support since my arrival in July and for her service to Appalachian State University,” said Chancellor Everts.

“I want to ensure that Chancellor Everts has time to recruit her own academic leadership,” said Provost Gonzalez. “This timing allows her to start a search for my replacement during the current academic year.”

Former Provost Stan Aeschleman has agreed to serve in an interim capacity until a new Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor can be selected.
