Wilcox announced and solidified his plan to leave the position effective on Jan. 1. While June Youatt served as acting provost in his place from January until June, she now will take over his full duties.
He also began working with the Partnership to Cut Hunger and Poverty in Africa, an MSU-connected nonprofit, on Jan. 1. The nonprofit is based in Washington, D.C.
Wilcox received his bachelor’s degree from MSU in 1976.
