Update: Office of Undergraduate Studies

August 15, 2023

Dear Colleagues,

As you might expect, my appointment as Interim Provost will result in necessary shifts in the Office of Undergraduate Studies for the year ahead.

I am very grateful that Amanda Godley, Vice Provost for Graduate Studies, has agreed to also serve as the Interim Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies. In that capacity, she will lead the efforts of the Undergraduate Studies team, including the work of Belkys Torres, Associate Vice Provost for Inclusive Education, April Belback, newly appointed Associate Vice Provost for Student Success and Advising, and Juan Manfredi, Associate Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies. Some of you may recall that Juan served as Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies prior to my appointment to that role. I am delighted to welcome him back to the Office of the Provost for this important one-year appointment. Amanda will also guide the efforts of the Office of the Registrar. I will continue to guide and champion the efforts of Daren Ellerbee in the Educational Outreach Center.

Thank you all for your patience, flexibility, and ongoing commitment during these transitional days as we forge ahead into the new academic year.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns.
