The  Executive Vice President and Provost at Ohio University has withdrawn from the last remaining outstanding chancellorship consideration for which she was vying.

Pam Benoit was being considered for the top position at Southern Illinois University Carbondale but has reportedly withdrawn from the search. Media reports from the university state that Benoit indicated she plans to remain at OU.

The news comes after the University of Colorado Denver decided not to consider Benoit for the chancellor’s job there after being the sole candidate.

University of Colorado President Bruce Benson said in mid-May that the school’s search for a new leader failed to find a candidate with vast support.

Benoit has served as executive VP and Provost at OU since 2009 and previously served as the vice provost of advanced studies and the Dean of the Graduate School at the University of Missouri.
