Breadcrumb TourArchived: New leadership role to support student success and online education goals

Last Updated: 05/07/2021

We are pleased to announce that Aisha Jackson has been named the first assistant vice chancellor and assistant vice provost (AVC/AVP) for academic and learning technologies, effective immediately. As an AVC/AVP, which is a new and unique role for the university and one that encompasses both the academic and IT/business sides of the university’s priorities, Aisha will provide the strategic leadership and direction needed to support the technology CU Boulder uses in service of student academic success. She will also lead related initiatives and services in support of online and other instructional technology. Tapping into her more than 15 years of higher education experience, Aisha will provide leadership to strategically align CU Boulder’s academic priorities with its technology capabilities in order to support academic success for undergraduate, graduate and online learners in more innovative ways.

As AVC, Aisha will continue to directly report to Marin Stanek, senior associate vice chancellor for information technology and chief information officer, and oversee employees, directly and indirectly, in the academic technology application and design unit. In her role of AVP, she will have a dotted line to Robert McDonald, the senior vice provost of online education and dean of the university libraries. 

Please join us in congratulating Aisha on her new role.
