As Vice Provost, my efforts are focused on elevating the planning, performance and accountability cycle, as exemplified by development of USF’s Archivum Faculty Information System (FIS); development of the USF integrated academic planning program; and, co-leading development of an Information Governance program. Over the next three years, my work will focus on the successful consolidation of SACSCOC accreditation, completion of FIS, and formalizing the Information Governance program.
