“I’m honored for the opportunity to lead the Office of Strategic Planning and Institutional Effectiveness, which plays such an integral role in the success of the university,” said Gee. “I look forward to serving A&T in this capacity as we continue our mission of transforming society with exceptional teaching, learning, discovery and community engagement.”

Gee joined A&T from Western Carolina University, where she served as lead business intelligence analyst for more than four years.
