September 12, 2002 Elizabeth Sacca named Dean of Graduate Studies


Elizabeth Saccá has been appointed Dean of Graduate Studies for a term beginning September 1, 2002 and ending May 31, 2007. At the time of her appointment, she was Associate Dean, Appraisals, Curriculum and Interdisciplinary Studies, in the School of Graduate Studies.

Elizabeth has been teaching at Concordia since 1975. She has served as department chair, graduate program director, and principal of the Simone de Beauvoir Institute. She has also served on the Board of Governors, the Board Advancement Committee and Senate.

She earned her PhD at Pennsylvania State University, and was the founding editor of the Canadian Review of Art Education Research. She is also a member of the Canadian Association for Graduate Studies, and in 2000, she received the June King McFee Award for professional leadership, research and teaching.

At the Board of Governors meeting held June 19, it was determined that the title of Provost and Vice-Rector, Research, will be changed to Provost, and a new position of Vice-Provost, Research, will be created.

Previously, the research portfolio came under the purview of the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research, but there was a need for a full-time senior administrator dedicated to the research portfolio. The Vice-Provost, Research, will report to the Provost and will act as the chief research officer of the university. The Dean of Graduate Studies and Research is now titled Dean of Graduate Studies.

Best wishes, Elizabeth, in your new post.
