Alabama State University's new interim president, William Harris, announced today he has appointed Leon Wilson, dean of the college of liberal arts, to serve as interim provost.
Wilson replaces Alfred Smith, who served as interim provost and vice president of academic affairs.
Smith retired after nearly 40 years at the school, Danielle Kennedy, vice president of university relations said today.
"Dr. Wilson is a very seasoned academic administrator and is highly prepared to help to lead the University during this time," Harris said in a statement. "We look forward to his tenure in this position."
