We are pleased to announce that Dr. Gioconda (Gia) Quesada, Professor in Supply Chain and Information Management (SCIM), will become our Assistant Provost of Assessment, effective Monday, February 17, 2020.

You may recall that Gia did exceptional work as the Faculty Coordinator of General Education from 2013-2018. She became Chair of the Department of SCIM in 2018. Gia has extensive experience across campus in various service roles. Please join me in congratulating Gia and welcoming her to this very important leadership position for our campus.

Many thanks to Dean Shao and the School of Business for their support of this move for Gia. Dean Shao and many other leaders have been supportive in helping us to fill this most important position for the College of Charleston. Dr. Chen Huei Chou will become Chair of SCIM effective February 17, 2020.

I sincerely appreciate the work of the original search committee when we conducted a national search last semester, as well as the reconstituted internal search committee. Associate Dean of Sciences and Mathematics, Jim Deavor, chaired both of these searches and was unwavering in our goal to appoint a highly qualified Assistant Provost of Assessment. Other members of the internal search committee were Lynne Ford, Irina Gigova, and Michelle Smith. I appreciate the assistance of many across campus to conclude this search.

Message from Fran Welch, Provost
