Mosher,-AnneInterim Vice Chancellor and Provost John Liu has named Anne E. Mosher, associate professor of geography and the environment in the Maxwell School, a Provost’s Faculty Fellow. Her fellowship will focus on advancing the University’s work in implementing the Shared Competencies and evaluating the use of high-impact practices in undergraduate education.

Mosher began her work on the Shared Competencies in 2017 as a member of the Senate Committee on Instruction and the following year joined the Senate Ad Hoc Committee on Shared Competencies, a group she has chaired since the beginning of 2019.

Mosher then wrote a vision paper with the committee outlining the tenets of the shared competencies pilot operating system.
