    Capital University is launching a national search for its next provost. The provost is Capital’s chief academic officer and is administratively responsible for all academic, student life, and related programs. While serving as the “first among equals” on the senior leadership team, the provost will partner with recently appointed President Elizabeth L. Paul at an exciting moment of renewed institutional vitality and in an ethos where challenge to the status quo is embraced.

    Learn why the opportunity for energetic, visionary, entrepreneurial, and visible leadership at Capital is uncommonly attractive. 


    Capital University serves a diverse student body of nearly 3,500, including traditional undergraduates, full- and part-time law students, students who have come back to college to complete their bachelor’s degree or get a second one, graduate students, and those seeking a specific license or certification. The University delivers undergraduate and graduate programs in the arts, sciences, humanities and professions, including graduate degrees in law, nursing, business, and music education.

    Located in Columbus, the 15th largest city in the nation and the fastest growing city in the Midwest, Capital's ability to incorporate the resources available in this dynamic urban region is uncommonly attractive. Engaging in strategic program development and embracing change, the new provost will have the opportunity to make a measurable difference in the life of Capital University. The provost will be invited to assume office no later than July 1, 2017.
