On June 30 after the school year was over and students were gone, Richard McDowell resigned from his post as provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at the University of La Verne.
McDowell will spend the 2005-06 year working on special projects with President Stephen Morgan.

“We had made a lot of progress and completed our goals and it just seemed like a good idea with the new school year starting,” McDowell said his decision to step down. “It seemed like a good time to step down and let someone else take it to the next level.”
Morgan praised McDowell’s performance in the position he held for four years.

“He made so many changes here at ULV... He set goals and accomplished them.”

“It was his desire to resign after the school year ended,” Morgan added.

The projects McDowell will work on this year include a “special analysis around the issues of enrollment at the University, and its growth potential,” Morgan said. “These are projects that we have not given much attention to because we are so spread out with many things going on and it’s great having Dick be a part of this,” Morgan said.

As for McDowell’s replacement, Morgan said that a search committee to be formed in the near future will conduct a nationwide candidate search.
