RE:      Appointment of Dr. Judith D. Redling as Associate Provost

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Judith D. Redling as Associate Provost; her appointment will be effective September 1, 2010. Judy is currently undergraduate program coordinator and university lecturer in the Department of Biomedical Engineering where she is responsible for undergraduate advisement and assessment and accreditation activities, including incorporating the assessment of information literacy competencies across the BME curriculum as required by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. She has also been responsible for oversight of the BME curriculum and for recruitment and retention. In addition Judy is the co-op advisor, the BME representative to the Undergraduate Curriculum Review Committee, and is a research mentor overseeing the Surgical Observership Program at St. Barnabas Medical Center. From 2000 through 2006 she held the position of research professor in the Department of Physics where she was also the assistant director of the undergraduate program as well as an instructor and course coordinator.

Judy received the B.E. – Engineering Physics, with honors from Stevens Institute of Technology and the M.S. and Ph.D. – Biomedical Engineering, from Rutgers University. She has held research positions at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation.

The near future will be a transition period for both the Office of the Provost and the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Dr. Redling will continue to teach for the Department of Biomedical Engineering during the Fall 2010 semester and she will be available to assist with advisement as she assumes the new responsibilities as the Associate Provost.

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Judith Redling as the Associate Provost.
