WSU Provost Mitzi Montoya announced Thursday she is stepping down from her position as provost.

WSU President Kirk Schulz scheduled a meeting for Monday with the faculty senate executive committee to discuss how this change will affect faculty, according to an email to the faculty senate from Greg Crouch, WSU faculty senate chair.

The faculty senate executives will also meet with Vice Provost Laura Hill on Tuesday, according to the email.

Phil Weiler, WSU vice president of marketing and communications, said Montoya would be assuming faculty position in the Carson College of Business in the Department of Management, Information Systems, and Entrepreneurship.

Weiler said he knew Schulz and Montoya met but did not know who proposed the meeting or what was discussed.

Following that meeting they both agreed that Montoya stepping down was the best course of action, he said.

As of now, it is unclear who will replace Montoya but Weiler said that Schulz will likely appoint an interim provost within the next couple days.

Weiler said if Schulz decides to search for a new provost outside the university that it could take up to a year to fill the position permanently.
