Miriam Sherin, associate dean for teacher education in the School of Education and Social Policy (SESP), has been appointed associate provost for undergraduate education, beginning Sept. 1.

In recognition of her outstanding scholarship and teaching, Sherin has been named the Alice Gabrielle Twight Professor of Learning Sciences. Twight, a renowned teacher, was the first woman to earn a doctoral degree from Northwestern.

Since joining SESP in 1997, Sherin has served in a number of leadership roles, including director of undergraduate education. Her new responsibilities will include providing the vision and leadership to enrich the educational experiences of Northwestern's 8,000 undergraduate students.

She will lead collaborative education and academic/residential initiatives to provide a nexus for connecting students, faculty and undergraduate academic and student affairs leaders with curricular and co-curricular opportunities, resources, support, and programming. And she will focus on strategies to promote even greater success by international students, underrepresented minorities, first-generation college students and those eligible for federal Pell grants.
