Horan Named Assistant Director of Academic Affairs
Kinesiology Instructor, Maureen Horan has been appointed the Assistant Director of Academic Affairs. She served as interim Co-DAA from July, 2007 until July, 2008. As ADAA, Horan will oversee all aspects of the Adjunct Faculty. Horan says she looks forward to these responsibilities, as she sees the need for quality part time teachers a must if diverse offerings are to be made available at Penn State DuBois.
As ADAA, Horan will also continue to support the newly aligned Center for University Excellence better, known as the CUE, while closely working with CUE Director, Jackie Atkins.
The CUE was once called the Learning Center and was the area on campus where academic assistance was provided. Today the Center is a bustling hub of activity surrounding Peer Tutors in many varied disciplines, workshops on everything from study habits to time management, and a place where visiting parents are taken to showcase the free instructional aid given to all students attending Penn State DuBois. Horan says Atkins has transformed the Center into an amazing atmosphere for learning.
Horan will continue to teach while serving as ADAA.
