The state Board of Regents voted unanimously to appoint interim Provost P. Barry Butler to the position of University of Iowa executive vice president and provost on Wednesday. The appointment is effective immediately.

Butler joined the UI as a professor in 1984, and he has spent his entire administrative career at the university. He is a mechanical and industrial engineering professor at the UI.

His salary will be $375,000 a year, a $25,000 raise from Butler’s salary as interim provost.

Butler began serving as interim provost in October 2010 after former Provost Wallace Loh left the UI to become president of the University of Maryland.

The regents also approved the reappointment of UI Senior Vice President for Finance Doug True and the UI Director of Finance Management and Budget Susan Klatt, both effective July 1.
