Crandall Appoints Dean of Professional Programs

Posted in on July 11, 2018

Roger Russell, Ph.DIn Crandall’s continuing effort to provide the highest quality programs to our students, it occasionally becomes necessary to update the way that those programs are administered. Thus we are excited to announce Dr. Roger Russell as Dean of Professional Programs at Crandall University. Dr. Russell has served CU for the past 12 years as Director of the Adult Professional Studies Division, while teaching in Organizational Management at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

In addition to Crandall University, Dr. Russell has taught at Dalhousie University, Mount Allison University, Mount Saint Vincent University, and Lansbridge University. As Director of the Adult Professional Studies Division at Crandall, he has shown passion for both people and program, and has worked diligently to serve both.

As Dean of Professional Programs, Dr. Russell will be leading and managing the delivery and development of the Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Management, Bachelor of Education, Master of Organizational Management and Master of Education.

“The efficient execution of the list of responsibilities for the Academic Office at Crandall University is daunting due to the sheer magnitude of responsibilities,” says Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Jon Ohlhauser. “I welcome the opportunity to work with Dr. Russell as Dean of Professional Programs to see that we better serve our programs, faculty and students. I am confident of Roger’s ability to perform very well as our first Dean in this area.”

Dr. Bruce Fawcett, President and Vice Chancellor of the university, has described Crandall as having grown into “a university with three colleges” – one for students in our traditional undergraduate programs in Arts, Business, and Science; one for students in our professional programs in Organizational Management and Education; and, one for students enrolled in our new international programs. With Dr. Russell’s appointment, and with Dr. Dannie Brown as Dean of International Academic Programs, two of these three “colleges” now have deans at the helm, with the third envisioned for the future.

Congratulations, Dr. Russell!
