UR appoints two new vice presidents

The University of Rochester has appointed two of its administrators to serve as vice presidents.
 
Robert McCrory, director of the university’s Laboratory for Laser Energetics, and David Lewis, chief information officer, were approved as vice presidents by the UR board of trustees at its meeting this month, officials said.

McCrory is director of the university's largest single research program. It has an annual budget of approximately $65 million and close to 350 employees. He will retain his title of vice provost as well as his academic titles in engineering and physics while serving as vice president, UR said.

“The Laboratory for Laser Energetics is a key component of our nation's scientific capital and leadership, a vital component of our work toward an independent energy future and a significant contributor to the local economy,” UR president Joel Seligman said, “Bob McCrory has done an outstanding job in leading the Laser Lab for more than 25 years, and I look forward to continuing to work closely together for many years to come.”

With his appointment Lewis will take on an expanded role in the university's strategic IT planning, UR said. He will work closely with IT organizations and leaders across the university, including at medical center.

“Dave has done terrific work in advancing several important campuswide information technology initiatives, such as the Center for Research Computing and the recently established University IT Security Liaison Group,” said Ralph Kuncl, UR provost. “This new title… positions the university for improved coordination and collaboration on upcoming projects in research computing and planning for modernization of student information and financial reporting systems.”
