Bowling Green State University

Provost Search

November 15, 2011

I am pleased to announce that we have named Dr. Rodney Rogers to the position of Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost. Rodney had been serving in the interim and before that was Dean of BGSU’s College of Business Administration.

We had an outstanding pool of applicants from around the country, but it became clear during the search that the best person for the position was right here at BGSU. Rodney has done an excellent job during his time as interim and I am confident that he is well suited for this critical leadership role.

Rodney was named Dean of BGSU's College of Business Administration in 2006. Prior to that, he served as Associate Dean and Director of Academic Programs in the School of Business at Portland (Ore.) State University. He has also held positions at Case Western Reserve University, Ohio Northern University, and the Cranfield School of Management, in England.

Rodney holds a bachelor’s degree from Ohio Northern University. He earned his M.B.A. from BGSU and a Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University.

The Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost is the chief academic officer of the University and is responsible for leading the academic mission and administration of the institution.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the candidate forums and interviews. I look forward to continuing to work with Rodney to achieve even higher levels of academic excellence and student success.
