Who is Alvin Goldfarb?
Alvin Goldfarb: Alvin "Al" Goldfarb was the tenth president of Western Illinois University. Prior to his current position from 1977 to 2002 he was on the faculty of the department of theatre at Illinois State University in Normal, where he was also chairman of the theatre department, dean of fine arts from 1988 to 1998, and provost and vice president for academic affairs from 1998. He earned a Ph.D. in theater history from the City University of New York. In 2006 Goldfarb announced that he was being treated for prostate cancer and that a complete recovery was expected. At the July 2009 meeting of the WIU Board of Trustees, Goldfarb officially announced his intention to retire on June 30, 2011. It was announced that President Goldfarb will be succeeded as president of the university by Western's current Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Jack Thomas, succeeded him on July 1, 2011. A search committee will now search for an Interim Provost, as well as for two other Vice President positions whose present incumbent officeholders will be retiring soon.
