A University of Kentucky administrator has been named provost and vice president of academic affairs at the University of the Sciences, the university announced Monday morning.
Heidi M. Anderson has spent 11 years at the Kentucky university, most recently serving as vice president for institutional effectiveness. She will begin her new post on July 1.
University of the Sciences President Helen F. Giles-Gee, who began her tenure six months ago, said Anderson was selected from a national field of candidates.
“I and the university community were impressed with her well-documented academic acumen, her understanding of the dynamic future of science and healthcare education on a national level, and her collegial leadership style,” Giles-Gee said in a prepared statement. “We have no doubt that she will serve this University well as it addresses its expanded vision for the future."
