Marcia Moshé became the interim vice-provost, academic on December 1, 2015. Previously, she was associate dean in the Faculty of Arts, Students and Undergraduate Studies.
As associate dean, she provided leadership in all academic matters relating to undergraduate programming in Arts, and in consultation with the Dean and the Dean’s Council, developed and implemented strategies to enhance undergraduate programs, curricular development, and new approaches to student support and advancement.
In 2007, Moshé established the Faculty of Arts Student Experience Centre, comprised of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals who provide services that assist Arts undergraduate students in working toward their academic, career, and personal goals. Moshé helped develop the new one-year common Arts foundation (shared by nine undergraduate programs), which maximizes student choice in courses, minors, and program options; enables students to transfer seamlessly from one Arts program to another; and allows for the development of intra- and inter-Faculty combined majors.

With over 16 years of experience in university administration at Ryerson and the Faculty of Arts, Moshé is a recognized leader in undergraduate programming and curriculum development.
