FAU President John Kelly announced last week that Bret Danilowicz will become the new provost.

The Oklahoma State dean will oversee Academic Affairs beginning July 1. This includes the 10 colleges, the campus libraries, and the academic program’s budget and personnel.

After 18 years of administrative experience at three different universities, Danilowicz said he feels “well prepared” to become the next provost.

“Dr. Danilowicz is a tremendous addition to FAU,” Kelly said via email. “[He] impressed many who met him with his energy, and his innovative and forward thinking nature.”

This follows current provost Garry Perry’s resignation earlier this year.

In response, FAU conducted a national search and narrowed it down to three candidates, including Danilowicz. The three visited FAU in early May and discussed what they would change if hired.

“I would like to move some of the administrative planning and decision making from the provost’s office to the college deans,” Danilowicz said.

He also wants to establish a strong “communication network” between the Faculty Senate, the president, the vice presidents, and the other partner campuses.

“I cannot wait to become part of this energized community,” he said.
