November 2, 2016
Brad Caskey, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at UW-River Falls, has been named a finalist for the position of provost and executive vice president of Academic Affairs at Columbus State University in Georgia.
Caskey is one of three candidates for the position, along with Jane McCandless, dean of the College of Social Science at the University of West Georgia and Cheryl Torsney, the former senior vice provost at the University of Texas.
Caskey is an alumnus of UWRF, having graduated in 1980. He then returned to the university as a developmental psychological professor before moving up to dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Since becoming a professor, Caskey has worked at UWRF for over 25 years.
Caskey would not comment at this time about becoming a finalist for the position at CSU or the possibility of leaving his alma mater.
The candidates will travel to the CSU campus this week and next for interviews with various administrative leaders, faculty, staff and students. Caskey will be visiting the campus for such interviews Nov. 9-11.
