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.
