The president’s senior staff has two new additions.
First, Dr. Stephen Scheck was recently promoted to vice president of academic affairs, from his position as dean for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS). "We are fortunate to have someone with his skills, knowledge and enthusiasm for the mission of WOU, ready to fill this critically important role," said President Weiss.
The second addition is Barbara Dearing, as WOU’s executive director of intercollegiate athletics, “Barbara Dearing has been successful in all areas of collegiate athletics and I am confident she will be a great asset to WOU,” said Weiss. She comes to WOU with more than 25 years of athletic experience, including most recently at Portland State University.
The WOU administration filled two other important roles.
Dr. Susanne Monahan has filled the position of dean for LAS, joining WOU from Montana State University where she served as the associate dean for curricular and program development. Monahan was also the chair for the Department of Sociology and Anthropology.
Also, WOU welcomes Daniel Clark as the director for the Division of Extended Programs. He comes to Monmouth from Utah Valley University, where he was the senior director of distance education.
