Vice Provost for Faculty and Staff Programs
The Vice Provost for Faculty and Staff Programs works closely with individuals in administrative offices, deans of schools and colleges, and other units across campus to address issues of concern to faculty and staff.
Michael Bernard-Donals is the Nancy Hoefs Professor of English and an affiliate member of the Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies. His research areas include the history and theory of rhetoric, public memory (including museums and memorials), and Jewish Studies. He's written widely, and taught courses, on how we remember events like the Holocaust, the different forms that memory takes, and the consequences—intended and unintended—of those memorial forms on individuals and their communities. Prior to his work in the provost's office, Professor Bernard-Donals was the chair of the English Department, the director of the Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies, the chair of the Arts and Humanities Divisional Executive Committee, and chair of the University Committee.
