A new provost and vice president of academic affairs has been named following the retirement of former UNT provost, Finley Graves.

The UNT alumna Jennifer Evans-Cowley will start the position on July 1. She received a master’s degree from UNT in public administration and has a Bachelor of Science in political science, a master’s of urban planning and a Ph.D. in urban and regional science from Texas A&M University.

Since 2014, Evans-Cowley has been the vice provost for capital planning and regional campuses at Ohio State University where she took on various projects such as the President’s and Provost’s Teaching Institute to improve the quality of teaching and its effectiveness.

Before her vice provost position, Evans-Cowley taught at Texas A&M and Ohio State where she chaired city and regional planning in the Knowlton School and was later promoted to associate dean for academic affairs and administration in the college of engineering.

Graves has been with UNT since 2002 where he started off as an accounting professor and chairman of the accounting department. He was appointed to interim academic leader and later appointed to provost, leaving his position as dean of the College of Business where he had been since 2007. He has served as provost since 2015.
