Following a national search, Dr. Dan Silber will become the next Executive Vice President, Provost, and Dean of Faculty at UC. Dr. Silber comes to UC having served over the past 15 years as the Senior Vice President and Provost at Piedmont University in Georgia, Vice President and Dean of the College at Culver-Stockton College in Missouri, and Associate Provost at Florida Southern College. Prior to his administrative positions he served in faculty positions at Kent State University and Florida Southern College.

Dr. Silber earned his PhD and MA degrees in philosophy from Vanderbilt University, and a BA in philosophy and history from the George Washington University. He is also a graduate of the Institute for Management and Leadership at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education.

Dr. Silber brings to UC extensive experience managing and leading initiatives to serve students of all ages and backgrounds via in-seat and online modalities, liberal arts and professional programs, and bachelor and graduate degree education.

“I am very excited to be joining the University of Charleston this summer and look forward to getting to know new colleagues, students, and the whole community,” Silber said. “UC was an institution I’d heard many positive things about over the years because of its high-quality academic program, focus on professional education, and uncompromising dedication to student success. It is truly an honor to now have the opportunity to serve UC and to work with faculty and staff to help our students achieve their dreams.”

Dr. Silber will begin his appointment with UC on July 3, 2023, following the retirement of current Vice Executive Vice President and Provost Dr. Kim Spiezio.
