Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Xuanning Fu as interim Director of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness, effective June 28th. Dr. Tina Leimer will be leaving on June 27th for a new position with Bridgepoint Education.

Xuanning Fu is Professor of Sociology and Associate Dean of the College of Social Sciences. Prior to joining Fresno State in 2003, he was Chief Researcher for the Institutional Research Office at Brigham Young University, Hawaii, and Principal Analyst/Educational program evaluator at UC Merced.

We will begin a search for a permanent Director at the beginning of the Fall semester. Professor Fu will continue in this interim position until a permanent appointee is in place, and will also continue as Associate Dean.

I am very grateful for Professor Fu's willingness to serve in this role, and have every confidence that he will provide excellent leadership for the production of institutional research and analysis that allows us to make sound, data-driven decisions, the provision of guidance and support for the assessment of student learning, the development of metrics and practices that monitor progress on the University's Strategic Plan, and collaboration across the University to maintain a robust culture of evidence.
