(Sept. 17, 2013) -- The UTSA Office of the Provost announces two new appointments within Academic Affairs: Donna Edmondson as ombudsperson and Alan Shoho as associate vice provost for academic and faculty support.
As Academic Affairs ombudsperson, Edmondson will serve as a resource to faculty, as well as Academic Affairs staff and student employees, who have questions or concerns about the academic enterprise of the university. The ombudsperson helps parties resolve issues in a neutral, informal and confidential manner, and it is anticipated that her services also will be utilized in grievance processes.
Edmondson has worked for UTSA 18 years, most recently as ombudsperson in the Office of the Vice President for Research.
In his new role as associate vice provost, Shoho will help facilitate the implementation and review of all faculty support programs. Among his current projects are a university-wide mentoring/coaching program, a faculty recognition program and programming for the anticipated Faculty Center in the John Peace Library. Also, he will support initiatives related to the Downtown Campus.
Shoho is a professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. He joined the faculty in 1994 and last year participated in the Fellows Program of the American Council on Education.
Edmondson and Shoho both are past participants in the Leadership UTSA faculty and staff development program.
This high school student exhibit features images, videos, interviews and writings that the students learned about while participating in "The Will to Adorn: African American Dress and the Aesthetics of Identity."
