MEMORANDUM
May 5, 2014

 TO: Deans, Directors and Chairs
 FROM: Scott A. Bass, Provost
 SUBJECT: Senior Vice Provost and Dean of Academic Affairs, Phyllis Peres
____________________________________________________________________________

I am writing to let you know that Phyllis Peres, Senior Vice Provost and Dean of Academic Affairs, is on short-term leave. The loss of Phyllis’ extraordinary talents at this time is a terrific blow to the operation of our office.

In the interim, please direct all communication regarding full-time faculty matters to Phyllis’ assistant, Abigail “Abby” Puskar. Abby will work directly with me on full-time faculty matters. All matters concerning adjunct faculty will remain with Associate Vice Provost Bill LeoGrande. Therefore, please direct any inquiries regarding adjunct faculty to him. Title IX issues should be directed to Beth Muha in Human Resources, and issues related to the DAA reporting units—CTRL, Study Abroad, and the Career Center—should be directed to my office.

Your consideration and patience is appreciated at this time. We wish Phyllis all the best during her leave.
