WSU to conduct nationwide search for new provost
PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State University is launching a nationwide search for a new provost, following the resignation of Provost and Executive Vice President Daniel Bernardo Monday.
Bernardo announced his departure in a letter sent to WSU faculty, saying, “It is time for me to step back and direct more of my time and energy to my own health and well-being.”
Bernardo, a doctoral alumnus and fixture within WSU leadership for 14 years, has agreed to stay on until his replacement is hired. He will then service in a part-time position as a special advisor to WSU President Kirk Schulz.
“Dan deserves the gratitude of the entire WSU community for his selfless leadership,” Schulz said. “He has invested himself 110 percent in advancing the priorities of our university for more than a decade. I deeply appreciate his partnership since I arrived on campus, and I look forward to our future collaborations.”
WSU has hired the executive recruiting firm of Issacson, Miller to assist in identifying potential candidates. The goal is to have Bernardo’s successor appointed by the end of the upcoming spring semester.
