Prof. Harry Katz, the Kenneth F. Kahn Dean of the School of Industrial and Labor Relations, was appointed by President David Skorton Friday as interim provost of the University. Katz will assume his new position Nov. 14, when current Provost Kent Fuchs steps down to prepare for his new role as president of the University of Florida.

In an interview with The Sun, Skorton said he selected Katz as interim provost due to his “excellent” leadership and management skills.
