UIS administrator appointed interim vice chancellor

An administrator at the University of Illinois Springfield for more than 20 years has been appointed interim vice chancellor for academic affairs at the university, pending trustees’ approval.

Lynn Pardie, who has been associate vice chancellor for graduate education and research at UIS since 2006, will begin her new position Jan. 1. She replaces Acting Chancellor Harry Berman in his position as provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs, which he will continue to fill until the end of the year.

“Her administrative experience, her scholarship, and the respect she has earned as a UIS faculty member and administrator since 1989 make her a great choice to lead Academic Affairs through this important period of transition,” Berman said.

Pardie was featured in an October 23, 2010, article in The State Journal-Register.
