That would be John Karl Scholz, most recently Provost at UW-Madison. [Full disclosure: Scholz was one of my professors when I got my PhD there in 1995, where he was also Director of the Institute for Poverty Research. I liked him a lot, despite the fact I barely passed the field exam.]
I think he has the potential to be a great President for UO. Congratulations to the Trustees and their search committee and yes, I’ll say it – the search firm.
This is exactly what UO needs – a competent outsider with abundant academic and administrative experience, from a university with an international reputation.
