University of Colorado at Boulder Chancellor Phil DiStefano has named Stein Sture interim provost. Sture, currently vice chancellor for research and dean of the Graduate School, replaces DiStefano, who was promoted to chancellor.
"As a CU-Boulder graduate, faculty member, department chair and esteemed veteran researcher in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Dr. Sture knows and understands our academic landscape from the ground up," DiStefano said. "He will provide seasoned, savvy stewardship of our academic operations as we seek permanent leadership."
DiStefano said he will determine whether to conduct a national or internal search to permanently fill the position some time during the upcoming academic year.
