TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - Florida State University has narrowed down its search for a new Provost to four candidates that include the current interim Provost, Sally McRorie.

The person selected will not only serve under the title of Provost but they will also serve as Vice President for Academic Affairs. The Provost will also serve as an acting member of the university's leadership team as well as multiple councils and committees, according to Florida State.

The university is hoping to find someone who will help the university with its efforts to become a top 25 ranked institution.

The four candidates will start visiting the University on Monday, November 9, and each will have an open forum so students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to meet the candidates and submit feedback.

The candidates include Daniel Reed, the Vice President for Research and Economic Development at the University of Iowa, Mark Zupan, Director of the Bradley Policy Research Center of the University of Rochester, Anne-Katrin Gramberg, Senior Counsel to the President at Auburn University, and Sally McRorie, the interim Provost at FSU.
