Xavier is currently in the midst of a provost search. The provost is an incredibly important position in the highest level of university administration and plays a significant role in student success at Xavier. The deans of each academic college, all faculty, Division of Student Affairs, Brueggeman Center, Center for Innovation and Information Technologies report to the provost. 
Two provost candidates will be coming to campus next week. For each candidate, there will be two student forums. These forums will consist of a 20-minute presentation by the candidate, followed by 40 minutes of Q&A by students. 
Forum information:
Student Forum for Candidate #1
Tuesday, March 28, 10:30 to 11:30 am in the Conaton Board Room
Student Forum for Candidate #2
Friday, March 31, 10:30 to 11:30 am in Kennedy Auditorium 
It is vital that student concerns are represented at these sessions.

Heim and his assistant, Helen Huber, gave many aspiring pianists one of their first professional concerts on a music series. The faculty, staff, and administration at Xavier University are grateful to Fr. Heim for bringing this important series to life.

One of today’s most formidable pianists, Kemal Gekic will be returning to the Xavier Music Series for the annual Father John Heim Concert. Flamboyant, daring, provocative, exciting, seductive and sensitive are some of the words used to describe Gekic, whose playing has been acclaimed worldwide by public and critics alike. His daring approach to tone and form, marked him as a maverick in the musical world, a distinction he welcomes: the very strength of his artistry challenges, provokes, intrigues.

Performing worldwide from a vast repertoire, Kemal Gekic presents fascinating, uncompromising and ever-changing interpretations as a soloist and in collaboration with orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London, Warsaw Philharmonic and Japan Philharmonic Orchestra.
