Framingham State University has hired a new provost who will begin in June overseeing the school's academic programs.

Angela Salas is now the associate vice chancellor for academic affairs at Indiana University Southeast, a regional campus of Indiana's flagship university. She will have the title at FSU of provost and vice president for academic affairs.

Salas will replace the retiring Linda Vaden-Goad. Salas said she was attracted to Framingham State because of its history as one of the country's first colleges for teachers and its forward-thinking approaches.

Salas is a former faculty senate president at two different colleges, and received Indiana University Southeast's distinguished teaching award in 2012.

She has a bachelor's degree in English from Ursinus College in Pennsylvania, a master's degree in English from the University of Nebraska-Kearney, and a doctorate in English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She is an author of a book-length study on Pulitzer Prize-winner poet Yusef Komunyakaa.
