Yale Names Provost as President after Expedited 10-Week Search

Yale Names Provost as President after Expedited 10-Week Search
November 9, 2012

Yale University Provost and President-elect Peter SaloveyJust 10 weeks after its longtime president, Richard Levin, announced that he would step down at the end of the academic year, Yale University announced Thursday that Peter Salovey (right), the university's provost and a professor of psychology, would become its 23rd president. The expedited search (the norm for presidential searches is between six months and a year) was even faster than that of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which made headlines earlier this year for appointing its provost after only three months.

Back then, search consultants said they were seeing more demand for quick searches, since it helps remove uncertainty in leadership.
