Missouri State University's search for a provost may be over. Sources tell CHATTER that Belinda R. McCarthy was on-campus Wednesday for a visit and second interview.

McCarthy is the only provost candidate invited back for a second looksee, the sources said.

Other candidates, according to Missouri State:

Dr. Sharon K. Hahs – provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs and professor of chemistry, Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville since 2000;

Dr. Warren Kent Wray – professor of civil engineering at Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Mich., who served as provost and senior vice president for academic and student affairs at Michigan Tech from 2000-05.
McCarthy is dean of the College of Health and Public Affairs at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. She has been there since 1990.

Oh yeah, I have been meaning to comment on this: WHO CARES?

This is one of those stories that too many media outlets are using to fill time. The average Springfieldian, even the average Missouri State student, is not sitting home going, "I wonder who the new Provost will be".

What do you think, Ron?
