Garnett Stokes, a former dean at the University of Georgia and interim president at Florida State University, was named Thursday as the new provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs for the University of Missouri. Stokes will start as provost, the university’s chief academic officer, in February.

“I think that I really like where Missouri is going,” Stokes said. “I know about some very specific strengths, and it looks like a place that I could make a difference.”

Among Stokes’ past accomplishments is the establishment of a program at Florida State to reward faculty with salary increases for receiving awards recognized by the Association of American Universities or the National Research Council. Under the awards program at Florida State, faculty salary bumps ranged from $5,000 to $15,000 depending on the award.
