A high-ranking Virginia Tech administrator will become the second in command at Washington & Lee University this summer.
W&L announced this morning that Daniel Wubah, vice president for undergraduate education and deputy provost at Tech, will become the Lexington private college’s new provost July 1. In his new role, he will be the chief academic officer for the school, responsible for “articulating, developing and nurturing the distinctive educational mission of Washington and Lee,” according to a W&L news release.
Wubah succeeds June R. Aprille, who retired in 2011. He was hired after a yearlong national search, the news release said.
A microbiologist, Wubah will also serve on the faculty at W&L, teaching biology. Over his career, he was focused on fungi and other issues affecting the wood-eating catfish Panaque, the release said.
Wubah has held faculty appointments at all of the colleges where he’s worked, according to the release. He’s been at Tech since February 2009. Previously he was associate provost at the University of Florida, held several posts at James Madison University, and chaired the department of biological sciences at Towson University.
