ASU Provost Robert Page will be leaving the post of university provost at the end of June for medical reasons, according to an email sent out by ASU President Michael Crow.
Deputy Provost Mark Searle will serve as the interim provost until a decision is made on how to move forward, Crow wrote in the email.
"You will be hearing from me shortly about the steps that we will be taking to find the next University Provost for ASU," he wrote in the email.
Page was the founding director of the School of Life Sciences and later served as dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Crow wrote in the email that Page will be returning to the faculty where he will be working on new initiatives between ASU and the Santa Fe Institute.
