Provost Elliot Hirshman

From President Freeman Hrabowski

Join me in congratulating Provost Elliot Hirshman on his appointment to the presidency of San Diego State University. Elliot has done a superb job during his three years here, particularly leading the campus’s strategic planning process focused on building capacity for research and creative achievement, strengthening enrollment and student outcomes, advancing our commitment to the environment, and enhancing campus safety and security.

In the coming days, we will more fully recognize and celebrate Elliot’s contributions to UMBC. In the meantime, I wanted you to know that I have asked Dr. John Jeffries, Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, to chair an internal search for an Interim Provost whose appointment will be effective Friday, July 1. We will provide more information about the search soon.

Again, join me in congratulating our colleague and friend, Elliot Hirshman.
