JUDY BONNER TAPS DR. KEVIN WHITAKER FOR INTERIM PROVOST
In a letter to University of Alabama faculty and staff, current University of Alabama President Judy Bonner announced that Kevin Whitaker will serve as interim provost.
Whitaker’s duties begin later this summer when current provost Joe Benson retires.
In the letter, Bonner said she consulted with UA presidential nominee Stuart Bell, along with the Council of Deans, the Faculty Senate Steering Committee and others.
Bonner said Whitaker’s expertise will prove helpful to Bell as he forms his administrative team.
Bell is the presidential nominee who has been tapped to lead UA after Bonner retires later this year..
