Dakota Wesleyan University's Rocky Von Eye will retire from the position of provost in May 2017.

Von Eye has taught courses in mathematics and computer science since 1984 and replaced former provost and current President Amy Novak in 2013.

According to the university's website, the provost serves as chief academic officer and oversees library services and student life. According to an email sent to students announcing the retirement, Von Eye has also provided leadership and counsel to the faculty.

Von Eye is a graduate of South Dakota State University where she earned both bachelor's and master's degrees in mathematics and computer science before earning her doctorate at the University of South Dakota.

For her work at DWU, Von Eye received the Presidential Award for Excellence in teaching mathematics as well as a Kellogg National Leadership Fellowship.

Because the position of provost is involved in student life, Novak asked the student body to participate in the process of finding Von Eye's replacement. Today, the university will hold a forum to allow students to offer input on the search to find a new provost.
