PORTALES—The Board of Regents at Eastern New Mexico University has approved a title change in branch campus administration leadership. Effective May 1, Dr. Judy Armstrong, ENMU-Roswell, and Dr. Michael Elrod, ENMU-Ruidoso, will have their titles changed from “Provost” to “President.”
"Our provosts are providing exceptional leadership, and the title change better reflects the true nature of their positions," said Dr. Steven Gamble, ENMU president. "They truly function as presidents of their campuses.
Gamble, who is located on the Portales campus, will also retain the title of President. He says the “Provost” title is not well understood by those outside of the academic community.
Both presidents will still report to Gamble, the president of the ENMU system in Portales, Roswell and Ruidoso.
