About me

Gender MALE
Industry Education
Location Athens, Ohio, United States
Introduction For more than 30 years, at two universities, I worked with branch campuses in a variety of roles, as a faculty member, campus associate dean, campus dean, and chief administrator of a five-campus system. After that work, I spent a few years leading the development of distance learning programs, further expanding my experience with programs for adult learners. Now, I am Vice President Emeritus for University Outreach, at Ohio University, and working as a consultant, executive coach and meeting facilitator. I still enjoy exploring the challenges and opportunities at branch campuses, as well as working with institutional leaders on the development of innovative programs. In March, 2014 I published "Out on a Limb: A Branch Campus Life," available on Amazon in both print and Kindle versions.
