Hoffman is finalist in provost search

AMES, Iowa -- Elizabeth Hoffman, a former University of Colorado president and former Iowa State University dean, will interview on campus Sept. 21-22 for the executive vice president and provost position.

Currently a professor of economics and public affairs at Colorado, Hoffman was president of the University of Colorado System from 2000 to 2005.

She served as provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at the University of Illinois, Chicago (1997 to 2000), and dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and professor of economics at Iowa State (1993 to 1997).

Hoffman was on the faculty at The University of Arizona, Tucson, where she served as associate dean and MBA program director (1989-1993) for the Karl Eller Graduate School of Management. She also was on the faculties at University of Wyoming, Purdue University, Northwestern University and University of Florida.

Hoffman received the A.B. in history (1968) from Smith College, the M.A. in history (1969) from the University of Pennsylvania, the Ph.D. in history (1972) from the University of Pennsylvania and the Ph.D. in economics (1979) from the California Institute of Technology.
