The shakeups continue at Florida Atlantic University with Provost Brenda Claiborne becoming at least the fifth administrator to step down in recent months.
Claiborne will stay at FAU but will become a program director for neuroscience at the Jupiter campus Aug. 7, the university said.
“While I have thoroughly enjoyed my tenure as provost, this move provides the opportunity for me to resume my research on brain development and aging,” Claiborne said.
Diane Alperin, associate provost of personnel and programs, will serve as acting provost until an interim provost is appointed.
A semester of controversies and bad publicity prompted former FAU President Mary Jane Saunders to step down in mid-May. Three other administrators left FAU for other jobs a few weeks later: Jennifer O’Flannery Anderson, vice president for community engagement; Janet Cramer, associate provost for instruction and assessment; and Monica Orozco, assistant provost for elearning.
