25 Feb UND Interim President Wynne: Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Tom DiLorenzo will retire June 1
After more than seven years with the University of North Dakota, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Thomas DiLorenzo has shared with me his decision to retire as of June 1, 2020.
Provost DiLorenzo has served UND since May 2013. During his tenure, he has served four presidents and devoted great time and energy to advancing UND during difficult budgetary years, always guided by what is in the best interest of our students, faculty, staff and the institution. He worked tirelessly to advance the ONE UND Strategic Plan, and led initiatives to increase student retention and improve graduation rates. He also strengthened UND’s relationship with the City of Grand Forks and grew internships for students throughout the community. Graduate enrollment is at an all-time high as is the Honors Program and our research portfolio. UND is now ranked #4 nationally in Military Friendliness, largely due to Provost DiLorenzo’s service as the Champion of Goal #6 of the Strategic Plan.
Over the next several months, Provost DiLorenzo will work closely with me, incoming President Andrew Armacost and others across campus to assist with the leadership transition.
Please join me in thanking Provost DiLorenzo for his service and wishing him all the best.
University of North Dakota
