Leslie Schiff recently accepted the position as the new Associate Dean for Curriculum for the Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE). One of Associate Dean Schiff's main goals is to increase the four-year graduation rate. She will also be responsible for connecting curricular efforts and information across OUE units, across colleges, and with other campus offices that serve undergraduate students.
Additionally, a new Assessment Coordinator was hired last month. Steven J. Hawks will serve as a campus-wide resource on undergraduate assessment and will work with faculty, staff, and administrators to coordinate assessment efforts of Twin Cities undergraduate student learning. He will serve as a key member of the Undergraduate Assessment Executive Committee and the Undergraduate Assessment Steering Committee.
Both positions will report to Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Education Bob McMaster.
