Provost Douglas Wartzok will step down from office on July 1, according to a memorandum from President Mark B. Rosenberg, which publicized Wartzok’s email to the president on March 27.

Wartzok served as interim provost in 2009 and was appointed provost in 2010 — an agreement between Wartzok and Rosenberg that he would only fulfill the position for up to five years.

He wrote to Rosenberg that he is ending on a “very high note” and was recently appointed Ocean Studies Board of the National Academies.

He’ll also be taking his first sabbatical in his 42 years as a faculty member, going to Australia with his wife Susan, the Libraries’ head of cataloging.

Wartzok said he hopes to be back in 2015 in a different position.
