Dr. Robert Marley, provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs, has appointed Dr. Daniel Forciniti, professor of chemical and biochemical engineering, as associate provost of faculty affairs, effective June 1. In his new role, Forciniti will assist the provost’s office with faculty and workload assignment, promotion and tenure policy, and other matters in faculty affairs. He also will represent Marley on various committees and at events, including working directly with academic affairs officials at the University of Missouri System and on other UM System campuses.
A member of the Missouri S&T faculty since 1991, Forciniti has served as a faculty fellow in the provost’s office since January 2017. In his new assignment, he will spend 80 percent of his time as associate provost and 20 percent of his time in his home department, where he will continue to teach, supervise students and conduct research in chemical engineering.
“Dr. Forciniti has a longstanding reputation on this campus as an extraordinary researcher and teacher,” Marley said. “He has served S&T well during the past 17 months as a faculty fellow. I look forward to continuing to work with him in this expanded role.”
