Director of Faculty Affairs
Yvette Jusseaume is leading efforts to establish Faculty Affairs functions for the Office of Academic and Community Affairs. Current efforts include developing policies and procedures for academic appointment and reappointment, ensuring that resources are readily available to faculty, and ensuring excellence in pertinent communications to faculty. She is also establishing protocols around faculty data collection and reporting, which are pivotal to effective operations, are important measures of success and accountability, and will ensure the School meets data reporting required for accreditation.
Ms. Jusseaume brings over 20 years of academic leadership experience, most recently as Director of Academic Appointments Data Management at Harvard Medical School (HMS). Prior to HMS, she worked in international education and in faculty services, collaborating with faculty in developing tailored programming as Director of BU Global (now MET International) and in executive operations for the School of Music at Boston University. She also collaborated extensively with faculty at Berklee College of Music on recruitment as Director of Admissions and with deans and department heads as Director of Academic Operations for the Office of the Provost. In these roles she led communications campaigns, developed and perfected reporting and data management tools, and contributed to large-scale system implementation efforts. She developed her technical skills and a flexible approach by working on software localization and development on multiple platforms as a technical translator earlier in her career. In 2010, she founded a language atelier, which provided boutique services on multilingual communication projects. Projects included translation and editing of medical research articles for Vall d’Hebron Hospital in Barcelona, Spain and contributions to Boston Children’s Hospital, CareMeridian providers of subacute care rehabilitation facilities, and FriendshipWorks elder care, among others.
