After a months-long national search, Xavier University President C. Reynold Verret announced April 12, 2016, the appointment of Dr. Anne McCall as Provost and Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs. She begins her appointment as provost-designate immediately and assumes the role of provost July 1, 2016. “Dr. McCall is the ideal candidate, in part because she understands Xavier’s unique mission and role as a historically Black and Catholic institution,” Verret said.

“Her deep appreciation for the values and traditions of Xavier, record of experience, and forward-thinking approach to the advancement of our mission, make her well-suited to help guide this University into the future, taking advantage of the opportunities and meeting the challenges of the times.” McCall currently serves as Dean of the Harpur College of Arts and Sciences at Binghamton University. Previously, McCall was Dean of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at the University of Denver and Associate Dean of the School of Liberal Arts and Associate Dean of the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Science at Tulane University.

“Having lived in New Orleans for 17 years while at Tulane, I have known of the strength of Xavier’s academic program, its social justice mission, and the success of its students. I am excited to assist Dr. Verret and the faculty as we seek to build on the university’s core identity and academic strengths to make it an even better institution,” McCall said.
