Roger Williams names Workman provost, senior vice president

Posted 5/7/12

BRISTOL – Andrew A. Workman has been named Roger Williams University provost and senior vice president. He will oversee all academic affairs.

He comes to the university from Mills College in Oakland, Calif., where he has served as vice provost since 2007.

According to a news release, Workman joined Mills College in 1993 as assistant professor of history.

The release said that as vice provost, Workman led a five-year undertaking to transform the school’s first-year experience and advising programs – an effort that helped contribute to a 10 percent increase in first- to second-year retention rate – as well as a task force that overhauled the college’s tuition, financial aid and recruitment strategy. That effort increased enrollment and tuition revenue by more than 25 percent.

Workman holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and social theory earned in 1983 from New College of Florida. He also has both master’s and doctoral degrees in history from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.

Workman’s appointment concludes a search initiated in fall 2011 and co-chaired by professor of biology Marcie Marston and School of Architecture, Art and Historic Preservation Dean Stephen White. Workman will assume his new responsibilities on July 15. •
