Gregory P. Crawford, William K. Warren Foundation Dean of the College of Science and professor of physics at the University of Notre Dame, has been appointed associate provost and vice president of the University, effective July 1, 2015.
Crawford will begin laying the groundwork for his new position but continue as dean this academic year, during which time the University will conduct an international search for a successor.
As associate provost and vice president, Crawford will be charged with developing Notre Dame’s presence in California, initially in the Bay Area. He will begin by expanding career services, internships and employment opportunities for Notre Dame undergraduates; recruiting the best students from leading California high schools to Notre Dame; expanding development efforts in the state; and offering courses and programs through this new presence in California as well as through online learning.
