University, Schlissel was respon-

Mark Schlissel, Brown Uni-
versity's provost, will succeed
University President Mary Sue
Coleman as the University of

Michigan's 14th president. His
term will begin July 1.
The decision was unani-
mously approved by the Uni-
versity's Board of Regents at a
special meeting Friday morn-
ing in the Michigan Union's
Kuenzel Room. The announce-
ment arrives after a presidential
search committee spent much of
the summer and fall gathering
input from faculty and students
and the assistance of Russell
Reynolds Associates, an execu-
tive search advisory firm.

Schlissel will receive a base
salary of $750,000 per year with
an annual increase determined
by the regents. His contract runs
for five years. Coleman current-
ly receives $603,000 per year
in her role, but has denied an
increase several years in a row.
Schlissel began his term as
provost at Brown in 2011 after
serving as the University of
California-Berkeley's dean of
biological sciences from 2008 to
2011. As provost, Schlissel serves
