The University of Rochester has appointed Jane Marie Souza as its new assistant provost for academic administration, officials said.
Souza serves as the university’s chief assessment officer and manages academic policies in areas that require coordination among schools. She will act as a liaison with the New York State Education Department and the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
The position was created in response to feedback from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education evaluation team, which recommended during last year’s reaccreditation review that the provost’s office include a learning-assessment expert as a resource for the university community.
