Kollmann becomes first vice provost for digital learning initiatives

NMSU named Sherry Kollmann as its first vice provost for digital learning initiatives in March 2020, a new role created by Provost Carol Parker to develop and drive an online and digital education strategy for the university.

Kollmann’s role is focused on driving the development of new digital learning initiatives, guiding a growing portfolio of online programs, overseeing the infrastructure and processes to support their success, and assisting with the development of the business models upon which these initiatives operate – all during a pandemic, when the university system’s digital learning infrastructure must be more agile than ever before.

Kollmann previously served as senior associate dean of business programs at Southern New Hampshire University and vice president of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies at New England College. Prior to her transition to higher education, she served as a business leader, where she collaborated and consulted with Fortune 500 organizations on workforce solutions.

She holds a bachelor’s degree from Bethel College, a Master of Arts degree from Concordia University, and Master of Education and Ph.D. from the University of Oklahoma. Kollmann’s research specialties include digital learning, motivation in education, instructional design and integrated learning.
