FAYETTEVILLE -- A University of Arkansas at Fayetteville administrator will not become the top academic officer at the University of Toledo after the Ohio university on Thursday announced a California engineering dean as its choice for provost.
Charles Robinson, UA's vice chancellor for diversity and community, visited the Ohio school last month as one of four finalists for the job. Robinson is also UA's interim vice provost for student affairs.
He declined to comment Thursday after the University of Toledo announced Andrew Hsu, dean of San Jose State University's college of engineering, as its next provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. The hire is contingent on approval from the university's board of trustees.
The University of Toledo's president is Sharon Gaber, who last year left her job as UA's provost. Last week, UA Chancellor Joe Steinmetz announced that he had formed a committee to help find UA's next provost. Ashok Saxena has served as UA's interim provost since Gaber's departure.
