Interim associate provost for academic planning named

Jerome Legge, associate dean of the School of Public and International Affairs, has been named interim associate provost for academic planning.

Legge succeeds Bob Boehmer, who became interim president of East Georgia College this month.

“While Dr. Legge will follow in the footsteps of a superb administrator, I am confident that his distinguished service as an academic administrator and faculty member will serve him well in leading the Office of Academic Planning,” said Provost Jere Morehead.

The Office of Academic Planning is responsible for coordinating the university’s accreditation process and implementation of the institution’s strategic plan.

The office also handles program review and assessment at the institutional level. The Office of Institutional Research also is a unit of academic planning.

Legge has been affiliated with UGA since 1980 and served as director of the highly ranked master of public administration program in the School of Public and International Affairs from 1981-2002. He teaches graduate courses in research methods and program evaluation in the department of public administration and policy and an undergraduate course on the Holocaust and contemporary German politics in the department of international affairs.
