Ball State's King To Be Interim President

Provost will serve until new president Paul Ferguson takes over Aug. 1
Ball State University's provost will serve as interim president of the Muncie school for one month.
 
Ball State's Board of Trustees announced that Terry King, who also serves as vice president of academic affairs, would serve in the president's chair from July 1 until August 1.  King's tenure will bridge the transition between the retirement of Jo Ann Gora and the beginning of the term of new president Paul Ferguson
 
"I'm honored to serve the university and help ensure a smooth transition for President Ferguson," said King. "The university has made great strides over several years. I'm sure that Dr. Ferguson will build on those successes, and we will raise the bar higher still. I’m pleased to assist in this transition in any way I can."
 
The Board named Ferguson as Ball State's 15th president on May 22. He is coming to Muncie from the University of Maine.  Gora's retirement takes effect June 30 after she led Ball State for ten years.
