Lynn Albee ’06, M’07, Ed.D., has been named associate dean for Advancing Studies and director of Summer Programming. This new position will assist in achieving goal two of the strategic plan: growing enrollment. Albee will focus on the vital work of building and evolving our B.S. Completion programs in the School of Business and Technology and the School of Health and Human Services, while also identifying new ways to leverage our campus locations to build a vibrant suite of summer programming.
In this role, Albee will report to Michelle Wieser, Ph.D., dean of the School of Business and Technology. She will work closely with staff and faculty within our bachelor’s completion programs and across the university’s operational units to enhance visibility of degree completion and summer programs and to connect these programs to the educational and training needs of organizations. Her work will include collaborating with stakeholders across the university to develop short- and long-term strategies to achieve growth.
Albee recently served as acting dean and department chair for the School of Education. Prior to that, she was the program director and assistant dean of the Master of Arts in Education program, where she led the program to an online delivery format while offering graduate certificates and specializations in Curriculum and Instruction, Mental Health in Education, and Culturally Responsive Teaching.
Albee is excited to assume this new role at Saint Mary’s. “I look forward to finding new ways to keep students engaged and help them remain relevant in their careers. I have loved working with everyone in the School of Education for the past nine years, and welcome the opportunity to grow and learn in a new position that will make a lasting impact on our students and the university.”
