Stetson University has named Elizabeth Skomp its next provost and vice president for academic affairs. Skomp has been dean of the College of Arts & Sciences since 2019. “Stetson is so fortunate to have secured Dr. Elizabeth Skomp for this vital leadership role,” university President Christopher Roellke said in a news release. “Dr. Skomp is a champion of a broad liberal arts education and is also highly skilled in addressing the myriad of challenges and opportunities contained within the higher education landscape.” Skomp will start in her new role on July 1, after Noel Painter steps down after seven years as provost.
