Lead faculty of IONL's Nursing Leader Fellowship has been named Vice-President & Provost of Illinois State University.
Illinois State University President Larry Dietz has named Janet Krejci vice president for Academic Affairs and provost, effective immediately.
"Dr. Krejci has shown great passion and vision for Illinois State. Her experience reaches into all levels of higher education, and she has shown distinction at every step," said Dietz. "We look forward to her leadership helping to guide our commitment to excellence in teaching and scholarship at ISU."
Dietz thanked the committee that led the search process and oversaw the candidates' open forums and meetings with shared governance groups. "The University is grateful for the dedication and hard work of the committee. Their concerted efforts yielded an exemplary provost search process, a strong pool of candidates and four outstanding finalists."
Since July 2014, Krejci served as the interim vice president for Academic Affairs and provost at Illinois State, after Sheri Noren Everts accepted a position as chancellor of Appalachian State University. Krejci also served as the dean of Illinois State's Mennonite College of Nursing from 2009 to 2014.
