Weissinger, Espy take on new roles
Two Office of Research and Economic Development administrators have temporarily assumed additional responsibilities.
Ellen Weissinger, dean of graduate studies, is serving as interim senior vice chancellor for academic affairs. UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman announced her appointment Dec. 21.
Kimberly Andrews Espy, associate vice chancellor for research, is acting dean of graduate studies. Prem Paul, vice chancellor for research and economic development, made the appointment effective Jan. 1. Laurie Bellows, assistant dean of graduate studies, agreed to take on additional responsibilities, including management of day-to-day operations of the Office of Graduate Studies.
Espy assumed the role of acting dean in addition to her ongoing responsibilities as associate vice chancellor. Weissinger will continue to serve on the management team of the Great Plains National Security Education Consortium, recently funded by a grant from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
"Dr. Weissinger is an outstanding administrator and colleague and I know she’ll be tremendous in this new role," Paul said. "I'm grateful to Dr. Espy for her leadership and to Dr. Bellows for tackling additional responsibilities. The university will be well served by their extra efforts."
Former senior vice chancellor for academic affairs Barbara Couture was named president of New Mexico State University in November. A national search for a permanent senior vice chancellor could take as long as 18 months.
