Dr. Sally Dickerson appointed Associate Provost for Sponsored Research

It is a pleasure to announce the appointment of Dr. Sally Dickerson as Associate Provost for Sponsored Research at Pace University, starting September 1, 2015.  She will succeed Dr. Victor Goldsmith who effectively served in this position since 2003. His leadership has established a firm foundation for the advancement of research at Pace.

The Associate Provost for Sponsored Research serves in the important capacities of promotion of faculty scholarship and managing programmatic initiatives with respect to external funding. 

Dr. Dickerson is currently serving as the Director of the Social Psychology program at the National Science Foundation (NSF). She has also been involved in other programs and initiatives while at NSF, including activities to foster interdisciplinary research, support graduate education, and broaden participation and increase diversity in STEM.

Dr. Dickerson earned her Bachelor’s degree from Southern Methodist University and her Masters and Doctorate from the University of California, Los Angeles. Since 2004, she has been on the faculty in the Department of Psychology and Social Behavior at the University of California, Irvine. Her research examines the pathways through which stressful experiences can influence health outcomes. She has been honored with several awards for her research, including the Sage Young Scholars Award for early career achievement in social/personality psychology and the Outstanding Early Career Contributions to Health Psychology Award from Division 38 (Health Psychology) of the American Psychological Association. She has also received a university-wide award for undergraduate mentoring at UC, Irvine.

Dr. Dickerson’s enthusiasm, knowledge, and experiences make her the ideal person to lead the Office for Sponsored Research. We look forward to great things from Dr. Dickerson as she guides research and scholarship at Pace to a higher level.  Please join me in welcoming her to the Pace Community!
