President Robert A. Corrigan announced Friday afternoon that Sue V. Rosser will be the successor of Provost John Gemello.
"Dr. Rosser was the top choice of every group with whom she met formally during her campus visit, a judgment I heartily share," said Corrigan in a press release.
"Above all, she offers the personal qualities that make her the right choice for us. Pragmatic yet visionary, seasoned yet open to new ideas, she will provide strong, harmonious leadership at a time of exceptional challenge," he said.
Rosser will take office on August 15, 2009 and receive an annual salary of $258,000.
She will be second in command at SF State, in charge of all areas of curriculum and academic programs, according to a press release by the University Spokeswoman Ellen Griffin.
"I am deeply honored to be asked to join the SF State community, which is uniquely positioned to forward the state and local research agenda and teach the leaders of the next generation of Californians," said Rosser in a press release.
Since 1999, Rosser has been the dean of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
"I look forward to working with my colleagues to take full advantage of SF State's remarkable strengths," she said.
