At Alderson Broaddus University, Eric Shor has been promoted to associate provost. The two primary tasks in Shor's new role are maintaining accreditation and assessing student learning.

Joan Propst, provost, says Shor has a great skills set for the position and that he's articulate, organized, a team player, and is well respected in the AB community.

As associate provost, Shor has been busy dealing with the accreditation of the university. Some of his most recent work was a focused visit. With work from faculty and staff, AB was able to secure accreditation until the 2016-2017 academic year.  

"We are in good place with accreditation both institutional and discipline specific, but assessment needs to be enhanced," said Shor. "The biggest challenges in this position are developing assessment plans for our liberal studies program. The faculty is doing great things in the classroom. It's just collecting the data and using it for improvement."

Shor has been with Alderson Broaddus University since 1999 when he was first hired as an athletic trainer. He contributes many things to why he has devoted his career to AB, the primary reason being the people.  

Shor and his wife, Amber, an alumna of Alderson Broaddus, reside in Quiet Dell, WV with their son, Adrik.
