Office of the Provost Staffing
In the next few weeks, leadership in the Office of the Provost will change as Chris Plouff, Interim Provost (and formerly Senior Associate Vice President), and Ellen Schendel, Associate Vice President, leave the University for wonderful new professional opportunities. A plan has been implemented that will temporarily distribute their responsibilities until incoming Provost Mili determines next steps for roles within the Office of the Provost.
Sonia Dalmia, Interim Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs, will continue her part-time assignment through the summer to support assessment and accreditation work.
Beginning May 28
Christine Rener, Vice Provost for Instructional Development and Innovation, will take on oversight of curriculum and work with the University Curriculum Committee and the Online Education and Microcredential Council.
Robert Smart, Vice Provost for Research Administration, will take on administrative responsibilities for the Padnos International Center.
Between June 18 – July 5
Ed Aboufadel, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs, will serve as Acting Provost between the time Chris Plouff departs and incoming Provost Mili arrives.
A call for applications for faculty interested in potential Assistant/Associate Vice President role(s) in the Office of the Provost will soon be distributed.
