A high-ranking administrator at University of New Mexico Health Sciences is leaving at the end of the year.

Amy Levi has been the vice president for academic affairs at Health Sciences since 2017, a position she will leave on Jan. 1, 2023, the university announced Friday.

The university plans to split her duties between two new interim directors.

Levi began at the UNM College of Nursing on July 2012. She started as interim chair of the practice team and interim associate executive dean. In 2016, she was appointed director of interprofessional education for the Health Sciences Center.

“I have been extraordinarily fortunate to have experienced such a full career at the University of New Mexico,” Levi said in the release. “I’m really grateful to have had the opportunity to be part of this amazing Health Sciences Center and to participate in the education of nurses and midwives in the state of New Mexico.”

Douglas Ziedonis, executive vice president of UNM Health Sciences, thanked Levi for the work she has done at the university over the last 10 years.

“She has made many invaluable contributions to our educational mission that have provided tremendous benefits for our students,” Ziedonis said in the release.

Levi currently oversees a number of offices at the college of nursing, including faculty contracts, professionalism, interprofessional education and student services. She is also the Leah L. Albers endowed professor of midwifery at the UNM college of nursing.

“It has been an honor to have Dr. Levi as a member of the senior faculty of the College of Nursing,” Christine Kasper, dean of the college of nursing, said in the release. “As the Leah L. Albers Professor, her scholarship has also improved midwifery in New Mexico.”

Levi’s academic record is a long one. She earned her bachelor’s degree in nutrition from Hampshire College. After that, she went on to earn an associate degree in nursing from State University of New York and a Bachelor of Science in nursing from Widener University. She also has a nurse practitioner certificate, a Master of Science in nursing and a doctorate in nursing all from the University of Pennsylvania.

Aside from her work with UNM, Levi is also a fellow in the American College of Nurse-Midwives, where she is the founding chair of the Midwives for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Abortion Caucus, according to the release.
