New Provost, Ray Alden, to join TUN

I am very pleased to announce that Dr. Raymond W. Alden III has accepted our offer to join us as Provost of Touro University Nevada.  Dr. Alden will begin his tenure on April 1.

For those of you who participated in the interviews with Dr. Alden, you know that he brings to Touro a remarkable background in higher education and leadership.  Dr. Alden currently serves as Vice President for International Affairs at Northern Illinois University and previously was Executive Vice President and Provost at that campus from 2006 to 2013.

Dr. Alden has strong ties to Southern Nevada having served in various capacities at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas from 1997 to 2006.  From 2000 to 2006, he was Executive Vice President and Provost at UNLV and also served as Dean of the College of Sciences (1997-2000) and Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences.  He also held academic positions at Old Dominion University, the University of North Carolina, and the University of Florida.

Dr. Alden received a Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Florida; and a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Sciences in Biology, minor in Chemistry from Stetson University.   He also served for six years in the U.S. Army Reserves.

You can read our press release announcing Dr. Alden’s appointment under our news section.  I know the entire campus community will share my delight in having him join the Touro family.  Dr. Alden knows our community well and is a great leader in higher education.

I look forward to having him assist me in guiding our academic, clinical and research programs.  His experience and commitment to graduate education and research will help us continue to meet the needs of Nevada.
