KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University President Judith I.
Bailey announced today she has accepted "with regret"
a decision by Dr. Linda M. Delene to resign her post as WMU's
provost and vice president for academic affairs, effective with
the close of the business day on Monday, May 22.
Her accomplishments as an administrator include implementation of a new Student Information System and leadership of a campuswide effort in 2001 to revise WMU's mission statement. For the past year, she has led a campuswide evaluation of the University's graduate programming.
"Because I have come to know Provost Delene well over the past two years, I know that her goals have always been to preserve and enhance the quality of this University and provide the finest academic environment for the students we serve," Bailey said in a brief message to the University community. "Those goals must continue to set the direction for this University."
