Bryan appointed to new post of associate provost for personnel
John G. Bryan of the University of Cincinnati has been named to the newly created position of associate provost for personnel, according to Provost James V. Staros.
In a Dec. 13 e-mail to all faculty, Staros said the new post was created to consolidate major aspects of the jobs held by Associate Chancellor Susan Pearson, who has managed the contract with the Massachusetts Society of Professors, and Donna Marino, director of Academic Personnel. Pearson is retiring and Marino plans to retire next summer, he said.
Bryan, who has served as Cincinnati’s vice provost for academic personnel and university contract administrator since 2008, will assume his new duties on Jan. 14 and report to Vice Provost Joel Martin.
Bryan, who is an associate professor of professional writing in the department of English and comparative literature at Cincinnati, has also held other administrative posts at the school, including dean of University College and associate dean of the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences. He holds a Ph.D. in English from the University of Denver.
