WEST LIBERTY, W.Va., July 26, 2022 — Leaders need to work on their skills and develop strengths, especially in the ever-changing world of Higher Education.
West Liberty University college deans met for a morning program of professional development to do just that. The planning of the program was through the Office of the Provost.
“This was planned for some time and offered us all a chance to gather, share successes and address questions. It is useful as we plan for the opening of our academic year and the welcome return of our faculty and instructors, and most especially our valued students and their families and friends,” said Interim Provost Dr. Catherine Monteroso.
Monteroso serves on the President’s Cabinet as the Chief Academic Officer (interim).
Deans heard from President and CEO Dr. W. Franklin Evans as the program began.
Deans attending include:
- Dr. Nicole Ennis, interim Dean of the College of Education and Human Performance
- Dr. Cecilia Konchar Farr, Dean of the College of Liberal and Creative Arts
- Dr. Karen Kettler, Dean of the College of Sciences
- Dr. Vincent Mumford, Dean of Graduate Studies
- Dr. Ann Saurbier, Dean of the Gary E. West College of Business
