Interim Provost and Vice President
As a comprehensive institution, we serve the educational needs of the citizens of the state, the nation and beyond. Rhode Island College graduates are everywhere. They are business people, artists, musicians, scientists, educators and leaders in many different areas, contributing to the region’s vibrancy and economic development. The college is the largest producer of teachers in the state, and it is a primary source of health-care professionals: nurses, medical imaging staff, social workers and counselors.
Emeriti appointments may be conferred by the president when a member of the college faculty or senior administrative staff retires from active service in good standing, and that individual has served with exceptional distinction.
The Mary Tucker Thorp College Professorship is awarded each academic year to a full professor with at least six years of service at Rhode Island College who has demonstrated excellence in teaching along with excellence in scholarship and/ or excellence in professional and collegial service.
