General education leadership transition

submitted by

On August 12, 2019, Stacy Freiheit, professor of psychology, assumed the role of director of general education. Stacy is now the primary contact person for all matters related to the current general education program at Augsburg.

Jacqui deVries, former director of general education and chair of the General Education Design Team (GEDT), has graciously offered to support Stacy as she transitions to the new role. Jacqui will also continue to oversee final clarifications and refinements to the general education redesign proposal through September 18, when the proposal will be advanced to Faculty Senate, in anticipation of a “first reading” in October and faculty vote in November. After September 18, Stacy will assume primary responsibility for stewardship of the proposal, working closely with Jacqui and the GEDT, as it comes before the faculty as a body.

Please join me, again, in thanking Jacqui for her 7 years of remarkable service in leading Augsburg’s general education program and the redesign effort and in welcoming Stacy to her new role!
