President Sunder Ramaswamy announces the appointment of two additional members of his administrative team:

Provost Amy Sands has been reappointed to her current role, and will continue to provide academic leadership to the Institute. She is charged with coordinating the work of reorganizing our academic administration, which begins next month, ensuring that we achieve what we have set out to accomplish: programs that are individually distinguished by their strength and academic excellence, contributing to a whole that is even greater than the sum of its parts.

Provost Sands brings to this challenging task her three years of experience in her current role, as well as three years as dean of GSIPS. Her knowledge of our academic programs, her contribution to the redefinition of academic excellence for the Monterey Institute, and the esteem in which she is held by her colleagues, have equipped her well for the task of building two vibrant, interdependent, forward-looking graduate schools, and an over-arching advising function that serves our students as lifelong members of an academic and professional community.

Amy McGill will also continue as a member of the administration, in the role of Executive Director of Planning and Special Projects.  She came to the Institute in 2007 from the National Institute for Technology and Liberal Education, after serving as the associate director and then director of Middlebury’s Center for Educational Technology.  She has appreciated the opportunity to continue working with long time Middlebury colleagues, but at the same time has developed a deep commitment to the Monterey Institute’s mission and its people.  She will leverage her knowledge of the strengths of both institutions as she continues to coordinate the M2 integration process, with a focus on finance operations and communications functions.

She will also oversee and develop the Institute’s human resources and technology services and programs; facilitate innovation across the Institute; and provide leadership for special projects that advance the Institute’s strategic goals.

The two Amys join Beth McDermott, Executive Director of Institutional Advancement, and Jason Warburg, Executive Director of Communications, whose appointments were announced previously, and Barbara Burke and Jim Graber, whose positions are ongoing, to form the President’s Staff.
