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 area." 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.
