ATHENS, Ala. (AP) - Athens State University is searching for a new provost amid faculty discontent.

Athens State President Bob Glenn says he plans to hold public interviews for an interim provost in November or December to replace Robert Cromwell, who quit under pressure last month.

The Decatur Daily (https://bit.ly/1zg8WFA ) reports the search begins as Glenn and trustees try to head off a possible no-confidence vote by professors.

A survey conducted at the university highlighted employees’ unhappiness with Glenn’s administration. Cromwell was the subject of many of the complaints.

Glenn and four trustees are scheduled to meet Thursday with members of the faculty and staff senates.

New Trustees Chairman Macke Mauldin says he hopes to head off a no-confidence vote.

Athens State has 84 professors and 3,179 students.
