Lloyd Minor Named Provost

In August, Lloyd B. Minor, a Johns Hopkins University faculty member since 1993 and director of the Department of Otolaryngology in the School of Medicine, was named provost and senior vice president of academic affairs.

Minor, who holds the Andelot Professorship in Laryngology and Otology and has joint appointments in the departments of Biomedical Engineering and Neuroscience, began officially as provost Sept. 1. In his new role, he is the university's chief academic officer and the second-ranking member of the senior administration.

"Lloyd Minor is an exceptional scholar, clinician, and scientist with an outstanding record in academic leadership," said President Ronald J. Daniels. "He brings to university leadership a driving passion to make Johns Hopkins stronger in all its crucial dimensions: research, education, and service."

Minor came to Johns Hopkins in 1993 as an assistant professor and became director of his department in 2003. A native of Little Rock, Ark., he earned his bachelor's and medical degrees from Brown University and completed his surgical residency at Duke University. He succeeds Kristina Johnson, who left earlier this year to serve in the Obama administration as undersecretary of the Department of Energy. Scott L. Zeger, a professor in the Bloomberg School of Public Health, served as interim provost until Minor took office this fall.
