Dean Lynn Sutton, head of the Z. Smith Reynolds Library since 2004, has been named Vice Provost of the University effective July 1. She succeeds Jennifer Collins, who is leaving Wake Forest to become Dean of the Law School at Southern Methodist University. “These have been the best ten years of my professional life,” says Sutton. “I look forward to building on the successes we have enjoyed in the library to influence the core educational mission of the university.”
Lynn will continue as Dean of the Library next year as a national search is conducted for her replacement. Day-to-day management of the library will be handled by Associate Deans Wanda Brown and Susan Smith and the rest of the strong leadership team.
