Jerry Baldasty

Jerry Baldasty, interim provost for the past 13 months, is the preferred candidate for UW provost and executive vice president. On April 26, he participated in an open forum with the UW community at the Henry Art Gallery Auditorium. You can view the archived video of that forum on this page.

The UW community is also invited to provide feedback on Baldasty’s selection by Friday, April 29, via Catalyst.

Background: In February, President Ana Mari Cauce asked an 11-member advisory committee to advise her on whether to appoint Baldasty to the position. Based on his leadership as interim provost and in consultation with UW constituencies, the committee forwarded his name as the preferred candidate.
