LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas chancellor says hiring a new provost and addressing campus concerns about race are among her top priorities. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said she expects it to take six to nine months to hire a new provost. A national search will be conducted to find a replacement for Provost Jeff Vitter, who is leaving the school to become chancellor of the University of Mississippi. Gray-Little said she is also hoping to make progress in addressing race-related issues at the university. She says addressing student retention is a key issue in bolstering diversity efforts, citing the gap in retention rates between black students and all other students. Gray-Little was hired by the university in 2009.
