Sona Andrews named Oregon university system vice chancellor

October 14, 2010
Dr. Sona K. Andrews, provost and vice president of Academic Affairs at Boise State University, was recently appointed by Oregon University System Chancellor George Pernsteiner to the position of vice chancellor of Academic Affairs. She will be stationed on the Portland campus and will assume her post on Dec. 1, replacing the recently retired vice chancellor for Strategic Programs and Planning, Susan Weeks.

Portland State Provost Roy Koch chaired the search committee that recommended Andrews to Chancellor Pernsteiner. According to Koch, Andrews will "deal primarily with all of the [OUS'] academic issues."

Regarding the OUS' current restructuring plan, for example, Andrews' involvement will "be important from the perspective of how it would affect academic programs, student success and, of course, how the funding would affect [them]," Koch said.

When Andrews takes office, she will be one of two vice chancellors, according to Koch. The position of vice chancellor of finance, currently occupied by Jay Kenton, has been around for many years and deals mostly with the "fiscal and physical issues" of the OUS, such as "budgets and buildings."

However, there has not been a vice chancellor of academic strategies for many years, Koch said. Andrews' position will assist the chancellor with academic and research activities.

In short, she will represent "the educational portion of the Oregon University System," Koch said.
