Dr. Jacqueline Andrews, assistant vice president for institutional research and planning, has announced plans to retire at the end of June 2013. The College will immediately begin to identify interim leadership for the Office of Institutional Research and Planning and will launch a search for a new head of that unit.
In a message to faculty and staff, President Christian commented: “In her work, she has interacted with many faculty, staff, and students, including interns and work-study students in her office, survey test subjects, presentation audiences, and fellow singers. We will miss her positive outlook, can-do attitude, collegiality and community-mindedness, and engagement in all things SUNY New Paltz and the broader New Paltz community.”
Andrews has served SUNY New Paltz since 2006, leading the Office of Institutional Research and Planning. Under President Steven Poskanzer, she supported the process that led to the Eight Vision Points, the foundation of our current planning. She has been instrumental in the College’s academic and administrative assessment efforts, as well as our successful 2011 Middle States reaccreditation. She has supported the current Strategic Planning Steering Committee and made technological improvements to her office functions and services. She formed the college’s Survey Coordinating Council and instituted our participation in the National Survey of Student Engagement.
Information will soon be announced about a farewell reception to thank Jackie for her contributions to the New Paltz community and to wish her well on her new pursuits.
