MADISON (WSAU-Wheeler News) The arts-and-sciences dean at Northwestern University will become the new provost at U-W Madison.
Sarah Mangelsdorf has been named to replace Paul DeLuca, who said last summer he wanted to return to the campus faculty. Mangelsdorf is also a professor of psychology and an expert in child development. Besides being the provost, she'll also be Madison's vice chancellor for academic affairs. The provost coordinates student-and-faculty life on campus, and becomes the top executive when the chancellor is away.
Mangelsdorf won the job over three other finalists.
