Involvement with Issues Will Help Roulhac Meet Challenge

     Ed Roulhac, who will serve as interim vice president for
human resources, has been the vice provost for academic
services since May 1993.
     In that role, Dr. Roulhac works with the divisions to
coordinate part-time academic programs, which now enroll more
than half the university's 16,000 students. Previously, he
served since 1986 as assistant provost and director of the
Montgomery County Center, the university's first
interdivisional off-campus facility for part-time education.
     Dr. Roulhac arrived at Johns Hopkins in 1978 as
assistant dean, and later assoc-iate dean, in the School of
Hygiene and Public Health. He was an assistant profes-sor in
the school from 1978 to 1985.
     "I bring to this new role an appreciation for the
academic environment, and for the special relationships among
faculty, staff and students," said Dr. Roulhac, who added
that he has enjoyed his involvement in human resources issues
in his years at Hopkins. "This is a very appealing
opportunity to serve the university and advance its interests
and those of its employees."
     "Ed Roulhac will move the university's human resources
agenda forward," Provost Joseph Cooper said. "He will provide
the same effective and imaginative leadership in attaining
our goals in this area as he has in the part-time programs
     Dr. Roulhac's responsibilities as vice provost will be
distributed among others in the provost's office while he is
heading Human Resources, Dr. Cooper said. That is expected to
be at least several months. 
     Dr. Roulhac is a 1969 graduate of Southern Illinois
University at Carbondale, where he also earned a master's
degree in 1970 and a doctorate in higher education
administration and community health education in 1974. He
received a master's degree in public health planning,
administration and policy analysis from Johns Hopkins in 1975
and was an assistant professor of health science at Towson
State from 1975 to 1978. From 1972 to 1974, he was a founding
member of the medical school faculty at Southern Illinois.
