Michael Zimmerman will be the next Academic Vice President and Provost at The Evergreen State College.

Zimmerman has more than 30 years of experience in public and private institutions, most recently at Butler University and the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh, including positions as dean of the colleges of arts and sciences at those institutions.
Zimmerman will begin work at Evergreen this summer.

He succeeds Don Bantz who served as Evergreen’s provost for six years before leaving to become the president of Alaska Pacific University in March 2010. Evergreen faculty member and former dean Ken Tabbutt has served as interim Provost.
