The University of Kansas Has Appointed Barbara Bichelmeyer as Its Next Provost

Barbara Bichelmeyer has been named the next provost and executive vice chancellor at the University of Kansas. She will begin her new duties in February.

Douglas A. Girod, chancellor of the University of Kansas, said that “Barbara is a talented researcher and administrator as well as a proud alumna with an unabashed love for this place. She is a Jayhawk to the core and committed to this university’s success. For all these reasons, I have no doubt she will be a strong and effective leader.”
