After a long, nationwide selection process, Robin Morgan has been named the University of Delaware’s new provost. She has been interim provost since October, when former provost Domenico Grasso stepped down.

Morgan will be the 11th provost, aka University of Delaware’s chief academic officer, and the first woman to hold the position as a permanent role.

“Over the last seven months, Robin has assembled an impressive record as interim provost,” UD President Dennis Assanis said. “Before working closely with her, I knew Robin as a highly respected educator and scholar, but after watching her in action, I am equally impressed with her abilities to lead, to inspire and to effect change. Her energy, integrity, analytical mind, innate knack for bringing people together, combined with her dedication and loyalty to UD are great assets.”

Morgan first came to UD in 1985 as an assistant professor in the Department of Animal and Food Sciences. She became a full professor in 1996, followed by 11 years as dean of the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) starting in 2001, and two years as interim chair of the Department of Biological Sciences before being named chair in 2016.

Morgan will official start as permanent provost on July 1.
