COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi University for Women has named a new provost and vice president of academic affairs.

A search committee has chosen Scott Tollison, who was one of three finalists. He has served in the job on an interim basis since last year.

The College Board must approve him for the job. His starting date would be July 1.
