Jed Marsh, who came to Princeton as associate provost in spring 2002, has been promoted to vice provost for institutional research at the University, effective July 1.

"Jed has been an invaluable addition to our staff," said Provost Amy Gutmann. "He is equally wonderful working with people and with data."

Marsh has been responsible for special projects and institutional research, and will continue with those duties, according to Gutmann.

"Among his many responsibilities in this position, Jed will manage the University's institutional research by maintaining a set of performance measures used to inform decisions about policy and the goals of the University," she said. "He will facilitate institutional data requests and coordinate institutional survey participation. He also will collaborate with the president, provost, other cabinet officers and vice provosts on special Universitywide projects."

Marsh came to Princeton after serving as associate dean of the Graduate School at Northwestern University from 1998 to 2002. He developed surveys tracking doctoral student placement and graduate student satisfaction. The student enrollment and retention models he devised have been used in the school's financial aid planning.

Between 1995 and 1998, Marsh was assistant chair and lecturer in Northwestern's Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Cell Biology, from which he earned his Ph.D. in 1991. He holds bachelor's and master's degrees from the State University College of New York-Plattsburgh.

Marsh also has served as a researcher and postdoctoral fellow at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.
