William Ladusaw appointed
interim vice provost and dean of undergraduate education
William Ladusaw, professor of linguistics, has been appointed to the
position of interim vice provost and dean of undergraduate education
by Margaret L. Delaney, interim campus provost and executive vice chancellor.
He will assume his new post July 1.
Ladusaw has extensive administrative experience, having previously
served as chair of the Linguistics Department and provost of Cowell
College, as well as on various administrative and Academic Senate committees.
He recently served as a member of the Steering Committee for the new
Academic Information Systems (AIS).
Ladusaw's research concerns linguistic semantics and pragmatics--the
description of meaning in language, how it is related to grammatical
structure, and how we understand what is said in context. He recently
coauthored a book on the formal semantic analysis of non-Indo-European
languages titled Restriction and Saturation.
