As the Associate Provost, Dan manages faculty personnel and the processes related to recruitment, contract management, development, leaves, and retirements. He also manages key elements of academic resources including academic buildings, the natural lands, and the art museum.
Dan admires the St. Olaf community and its liberal arts nature, where people from all areas of the academy share a common interest in exploring diverse topics. “I like the breadth of perspective that St. Olaf students hold,” he says. “The supportive environment allows students to take risks and explore a wide range of interests.”
