LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – The University of Louisville has turned to a 38-year faculty member to serve as its acting executive vice president and provost.

The school said Wednesday that Dale Billingsley was selected by acting President Neville Pinto. Billingsley’s appointment takes effect on Monday.

Billingsley is currently vice provost for undergraduate affairs and enrollment management. He also has served as an English professor in addition to his vice provost duties. He is a former Faculty Senate chair and a 21-year member of the provost’s senior staff.

Pinto says Billingsley will oversee the continued implementation of the school’s long-term strategic plan, known as the 21st Century University Initiative.

Pinto was elevated from provost to acting president after the departure of school President James Ramsey. Pinto will lead UofL until a new president is selected.
