Dr. Bill Eddleman, vice provost and dean of the School of Graduate Studies at Southeast Missouri State University, has been named provost at Southeast Missouri State University.

The provost is Southeast’s chief academic officer and is responsible for eight colleges and schools: Donald L. Harrison College of Business, College of Education, College of Health and Human Services, College of Liberal Arts, College of Science, Technology and Agriculture, School of Graduate Studies; School of University Studies and the Earl and Margie Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts.

Eddleman was among four candidates identified during a national search process. 

Eddleman said in a Southeast news release that his first order of business will be to conduct a search for his replacement as vice provost and dean of the School of Graduate Studies.

After that, he hopes to meet with the deans and get their feedback on priority projects for the remainder of this academic year as well as next year.

Eddleman has served as vice provost and dean of the School of Graduate Studies at Southeast since June 2011. He previously served as chair of the Department of Biology. He joined Southeast as an assistant professor of biology in 1995 and was promoted to professor of biology in July 2001. He served as Faculty Senate chair in 2001-2002.

Eddleman holds a doctoral degree in wildlife ecology from Oklahoma State University and did post-doctoral work at the University of Wyoming. He has a master of science and a bachelor of science, both in fisheries and wildlife, from the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Eddleman will begin his new duties Jan. 1, 2014.
