JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The University of Alaska Southeast has announced Priscilla Schulte as this school year’s interim provost, while the search for a permanent provost is expected to begin in August.

The Juneau Empire reports (https://bit.ly/1IpsZV1) that Schulte, who is director of the university’s Ketchikan campus, is expected to serve as interim provost until the beginning of summer 2016, when a permanent provost is to be named.

The university’s former provost, Rick Caulfield, became chancellor this year.

Schulte will live in Juneau as she fulfills her new role and will occasionally return to Ketchikan, where she will remain as director.

Schulte holds a Ph.D. from the University of New Mexico. According to her UAS biography, some of her specializations include multicultural education, Alaska Native culture and sociocultural change.
