The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce that Cheryl Addy, vice provost and dean of the Graduate School, has been appointed vice provost and dean of the faculty, effective January 1, 2021. Dr. Addy, Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics in the Arnold School of Public Health, will maintain her administrative responsibilities in the area of faculty affairs including faculty appointment and advancement, leadership development, family-friendly requests, endowed chairs reviews, dean reviews, internal grants, and SEC travel grants. She will continue to oversee institutional research, assessment, and policies.
“Dr. Addy is an accomplished administrator with a history of making contributions to graduate education, faculty affairs, policy, and institutional research. As the strategic plan moves to the implementation phase, we anticipate that the areas of faculty development and recruitment, policy formation and alignment, analytics, and institutional research will increase in their need for leadership and administrative support. I determined that Dr. Addy’s talents were aligned with meeting these new demands. I am excited that she can concentrate her considerable abilities in these areas. We all owe her our thanks and appreciation for her leadership in the Graduate School. And I look forward to her continued success in this new role,” said Provost William F. Tate, who made the announcement.
An accomplished researcher, Dr. Addy completed her PhD and M.S. in Biostatistics and Biometry, respectively from Emory University, following her B.S. in Mathematics (Magna cum laude) from Furman University.
