New Dean of Graduate and Professional Studies
WILMORE, Ky. — Asbury University is pleased to announce that Dr. William Hall ’91, an alumnus who has served as registrar since 2008, has been selected as Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies.
Hall majored in elementary and middle-school education while at Asbury and taught in the public school system before earning a master’s degree in educational leadership from Eastern Kentucky University. He currently holds a doctorate in education from the University of Kentucky in Instruction and Administration, with a concentration in Instructional Design. Dr. Hall's research interests include the use of lecture capture, technology instruction, instructional design and online pedagogy in order to more effectively achieve student learning outcomes. During his time at Asbury, he has taught in the University’s traditional undergraduate, Adult Professional Studies and graduate programs.
"We are excited to have someone with Dr. Hall's education, diverse background and specific skill set who can move into this position,” said Dr. Jon Kulaga, provost of Asbury University. “As former registrar, Bill knows all the academic policies, procedures and software that guide and implement our registration, student accounts and enrollment processes.
"The University has a forward-leaning vision that includes expanding the reach and scope of our online and graduate programs — regionally and internationally,” Kulaga continued. “In order to achieve that vision, the Dean of Graduate and Professional Studies will need to be a person who can work proactively with the faculty, staff and administration across the institution. Bill has already demonstrated that he can do this in a collaborative and creative way."
Hall will work with Dr. Verna Lowe, current Dean of Graduate and Professional Studies, to transition into full-time leadership of the school on July 1.
“I am very excited for this new opportunity and look forward to working with our APS and Graduate students, staff and faculty,” said Hall.
