Dean Davison named as finalist considered for provost position at GVSU


Grand Valley Lanthorn reported on Feb. 1 that Ian Davison, dean of the College of Science and Engineering at Central Michigan University, is being considered for the provost position at Grand Valley State University.

Davison is a final candidate being considered by the GVSU search committee who have now narrowed down a list of 75 applicants to four, Grand Valley Lanthorn stated. The position will follow Gayle Davis’s, the current provost at GVSU, retirement at the end of the semester.

On Feb. 6 and 7, Davison visited the campus to give a presentation and answer questions regarding his future vision for GVSU, according to GVSU’s university communications.
