Linda Brubaker, M.D., M.S., appointed Interim Provost for the Health Sciences Division

Dear Colleagues,

With the retirement of Richard L. Gamelli, M.D., Senior Vice President and Provost, I am appointing Linda Brubaker, M.D., M.S., Interim Provost for the Health Sciences Division, effective immediately. Dr. Brubaker will also continue in her role as Dean and Chief Diversity Officer of the Stritch School of Medicine as we embark on a search for a new provost. 

Over the next two months, I will be working with Dr. Brubaker and the Health Sciences Division leadership team to further refine roles and responsibilities so that the University can begin in January a search for the new provost for Health Sciences.

Please join with me in thanking Dr. Brubaker for her willingness to take on these additional leadership responsibilities. Again, I want to thank Dr. Gamelli for his 25 years of dedicated service and his enormous contributions to the vitality of the Health Sciences Division. We wish him many happy years in retirement.


Michael J. Garanzini, S.J.
President and CEO
