Dr. Sansing to begin her new role on July 14
SALT LAKE CITY -
Westminster has selected Lucille Sansing, Ph.D., as the new interim provost for the college. Dr. Sansing, formerly the interim chief academic officer and president of Trident University International, will begin her position on July 14.
"Dr. Sansing brings a mix of experience and knowledge that directly addresses Westminster's most pressing priorities of innovation for student success, and building and extending our community," said Brian Levin-Stankevich, president of Westminster College.
Sansing has more than two decades of higher education leadership experience. Prior to Trident University International, she served as president of Argosy University, San Francisco Bay area, from 2005 to 2010. Sansing was a provost for eight years at Notre Dame de Namur University, a dean at University of Redlands, and an associate dean at Washington College. With degrees from Bates College, the University of Virginia, and a doctorate in sociology from George Washington University in sociology, Sansing's research interests have been focused on women in higher education. Sansing comes to Westminster through the Registry for College and University Presidents, an organization that screens and provides experienced college and university leaders for short-term interim appointments.
Sansing will assist President Levin-Stankevich and campus leaders in the formal search process for the college's next chief academic officer. She will also support faculty and staff in implementing the college's new strategic goals, while bringing the benefit of her experience with non-traditional students and low-residency programs to help the college expand its highly innovative competency-based degree programs.
