Clemson’s Associate Provost for Academic Affairs Constancio Nakuma Ph.D. was named the University of Colorado Denver’s new Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs, effective July 1.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for Dr. Nakuma, and we are excited for this career achievement,” Provost Bob Jones said. “He has been a valuable member of our faculty for 19 years, and a great teammate in his current role as Associate Provost for Academic Affairs. He will be missed at Clemson, but we know he’ll do a remarkable job at CU Denver.”
In his new role at CU Denver, Nakuma will be a key member of the University’s leadership team guiding academic innovation and the advancement of a transformative academic, research, and student success agenda established in CU Denver’s newly designed strategic plan.
Nakuma has served Clemson for the past 19 years, three of which were in his current role as Associate Provost for Academic Affairs. During his time as an administrator, Nakuma continued to teach French/Linguistics in the Department of Languages. During his first 16 years at Clemson, he continued to assume administrative responsibilities – moving from Professor to Department Chair, to Associate Dean for Academic Services and Senior Associate Dean for Academic Services.
Prior to joining Clemson, Nakuma was a lecturer at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and then joined the University of Tennessee, Knoxville as an associate professor and program director.
Nakuma received his bachelor’s from the University of Ghana-Legon, Accra, Ghana; his master’s from Université Paris X-Nanterre, France; and his Ph.D. from Sorbonne Nouvelle.
