This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.

Elizabeth Mullenix will serve as Miami University’s new provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs. Miami President Greg Crawford announced the selection in an email to the Miami community today.

Mullenix has served as interim provost since July 2022 after former provost Jason Osborne resigned in April. She will officially begin the official provost role on Jan. 1.

“Her extensive experience, innovative and collaborative spirit, and commitment to student and faculty success will positively impact and elevate the Miami community,” Crawford wrote in the email.

Mullenix was selected after a national search, which included candidates Jeanette Altarriba, Lynn Okagaki, Karin Ruhlandt and Mullenix. Mullenix was the only internal candidate identified as a finalist.
