The departure of Provost Carol Bresnahan at the conclusion of last academic year brought a number of changes to TCNJ’s Academic Affairs area. Susan Bakewell-Sachs, most recently the Carol Kuser Loser Dean of the School of Nursing, is now interim provost, while William Behre, assistant vice president of grants, enterprise initiatives, and summer and off-campus programs, is now serving as interim vice provost for strategic initiatives and operations.
In her new role, Bakewell-Sachs supervises the College’s Liberal Learning, Study Abroad, and Honors Programs. The College’s academic deans, the Center for Institutional Effectiveness (CIE), and the associate provost for enrollment management all report to her.
Behre retained his responsibilities within the Division of Advancement, but is now reporting to Academic Affairs. Along with operations responsibilities in academic affairs, he now supervises the Bonner Center.
Bakewell-Sachs and Behre’s appointments are scheduled to run through Academic Year 2011–12 while the College conducts a national search for a new provost and vice president for academic affairs.
Lisa Angeloni, most recently the dean of admissions, is now associate provost for enrollment management, and is also now responsible for the areas of financial aid, records and registration, and academic support services.
Mark Kiselica, who had served as vice provost since 2009, was appointed interim dean of the School of Education for a period of two years. Kiselica, a counseling psychologist, began his tenure at TCNJ as a member of the Department of Counselor Education in 1994 and has held the rank of professor since 2002.
