Lisa Rossbacher - Vice Chancellor of The University System of Georgia

Vice Chancellor of The University System of Georgia

During the summer of 2007, Rossbacher was invited by Chancellor Erroll B. Davis of the University System of Georgia to serve as interim Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer when the position became vacant. She accepted the temporary offer under the condition that she return to SPSU as president once they found a permanent Vice Chancellor. She asked the system's Search Committee to not consider her as a candidate for the permanent position, citing her commitment to the growth of Southern Polytechnic State University.

In her role as Vice Chancellor, she served as the second-highest higher education official in the state. She was responsible for the academic needs of over 260,000 students and 10,000 faculty members across the University System of Georgia. Fifteen of the 35 university system presidents reported to her while in this role.

    The moral immune system of this country has been weakened and attacked, and the AIDS virus is the perfect metaphor for it. The malignant neglect of the last twelve years has led to breakdown of our country’s immune system, environmentally, culturally, politically, spiritually and physically.
    Barbra Streisand (b. 1942)

    By rendering the labor of one, the property of the other, they cherish pride, luxury, and vanity on one side; on the other, vice and servility, or hatred and revolt.
    James Madison (1751–1836)

    No woman in my time will be Prime Minister or Chancellor or Foreign Secretary—not the top jobs. Anyway I wouldn’t want to be Prime Minister. You have to give yourself 100%.
    Margaret Thatcher (b. 1925)

    Television ... helps blur the distinction between framed and unframed reality. Whereas going to the movies necessarily entails leaving one’s ordinary surroundings, soap operas are in fact spatially inseparable from the rest of one’s life. In homes where television is on most of the time, they are also temporally integrated into one’s “real” life and, unlike the experience of going out in the evening to see a show, may not even interrupt its regular flow.
