New Vice Provost for Library and Technology Services and Chief Information Officer at Brandeis announced: John Unsworth!
To the Brandeis Community:
I am delighted to announce that John Unsworth, dean of the Graduate School of Library and Information Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will be the new Vice Provost for Library and Technology Services and Chief Information Officer at Brandeis. John will start his position in mid-February.
Our library is a treasured resource and our use of technology and the innovation we bring to it are critically important factors in the university's future. I am confident that John will help lead us in the right direction in both these arenas. John impressed the search committee and the Brandeis community with his intelligence, deep expertise, collaborative approach and easy manner.
I want to thank those of you who served on the search committee. I know how much time and effort went into this search and its successful outcome. In addition, I want to thank students, staff and faculty from across the Brandeis community who met with the candidates, attended their presentations and offered feedback.
I am delighted that the process has led us to today's announcement. A story on the appointment has been posted on BrandeisNow.
