Meet Dr. Karen Carey, the new University of Alaska Southeast provost, who was announced last week after a year long, national search. She replaces former provost Rick Caulfield, who now serves as the UAS Chancellor.
Carey comes to the job with experience in administration. While she earned her Ph.D. in school psychology from the University of Cincinnati and taught for a time, she became the Dean of Arts and Sciences at California State University Channel Islands, in Ventura. She was responsible for student learning as well as managing academic programs with more than 200 faculty.
