Sue Legg Resignation and Her New Position
David R. Colburn, Provost
On January 1, 2002, Dr. Sue M. Legg will step down as Director of the Office of Instructional Resources (OIR), after long and distinguished service to the University of Florida. Sue began her work with OIR in 1974 as a statistician. In 1977, she was promoted to Assistant Director of Testing and Evaluation, and three years later she became Associate Director, a position she held until 1995. In that year, she was appointed Director of OIR.
Sue Legg brought about a number of major achievements at OIR. Under her leadership, OIR expanded its computer instructional programs for faculty, educational support programs for students, and training programs for graduate teaching assistants. She personally brought in millions of dollars in grants and contracts that focused on testing and evaluation, presented many papers at professional association meetings, and contributed broadly to professional journals and monographs. Equally important for the University of Florida, Sue has been an extraordinarily creative, energetic, and highly effective leader who has been a positive force for change in many areas of campus life. In particular, her leadership and achievements have been a great benefit to the University of Florida’s instructional and academic technology programs.
Sue has my grateful appreciation for her years of excellent service to students and faculty. While we will miss her as Director of OIR, I am happy to report that she will continue to serve as Director of the Partnership in Global Learning (PGL).
