Barbara Shaw assumes new role as special assistant to the President

Sep 8, 2015

Barbara Shaw, formerly the associate provost overseeing Pacific's Center for Professional and Continuing Education (CPCE), has begun a new role as special assistant to President Pamela Eibeck. She will provide leadership for high-level initiatives that span divisions across the university.  

In her new position, Shaw will spearhead the next steps of the university's Title IX efforts and help lay the groundwork for Pacific's future success around that legislation, as well as work on other important university-wide initiatives.  

Shaw, who has coordinated the university's commencement ceremonies since 2005, will continue to lead the commencement planning activities while creating a plan to permanently transition the responsibility to the President's Office.  

"Barbara has provided skilled leadership to our university in a variety of contexts for more than 25 years. She has also ensured our commencement ceremonies are a point of pride and celebration for our students, their families and our community," said President Eibeck. "I look forward to having her expertise and broad knowledge of our university in the President's Office as we work to accomplish important initiatives in the coming year."  

With Shaw's transfer to the President's Office, Vice Provost Vernon Smith will assume daily oversight of CPCE and its activities. CPCE is currently undergoing a review of best practices in extension education and a search for a permanent leader will occur once future planning is complete.
