The dean of Wichita State University's business school, Doug Hensler of Wichita, Kansas., will serve as NPS's 14th provost, the school said Friday.
Mabus told the staff last week that Rear Admiral Tighe, interim president since November, was needed "in the fleet" and a president would only be selected after the provost. There has been no word yet on which fleet assignment RDML Tighe would receive.
RDML Jan Tighe is featured HERE on The Pentagon Channel's "Inside NPS" segment. Her portion of the video starts at the 10:30 mark.
