Texas Tech Provost Bob Smith Stepping Down

Texas Tech

Texas Tech’s provost is stepping down.

Provost Bob Smith will officially leave the position on Monday, May 13th. Smith has been provost at Texas Tech since 2009.

The announcement comes from newly appointed Tech President Duane Nellis.

Nellis has appointed current interim Tech president Lawrence Schovanec as interim provost, effective on Nellis’ formal start date of June 15th.

Until then, Senior Vice Provost Rob Stewart will serve as the acting provost.

A national search for Tech’s new provost will begin in the fall.

“I speak for many when I say I appreciate Bob’s years of service and dedication to Texas Tech and higher education,” said Nellis. “We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

The provost serves as the university’s chief academic officer.
