Marilyn Lockhart, an associate professor of education, has been appointed interim director of faculty development in the Office of the Provost.

Lockhart will take her interim position on Aug. 16. She will report to MSU Associate Provost David Singel.

In her role, Lockhart will work with MSU's Teaching and Learning Committee to develop and launch a multi-faceted program to support the ongoing professional development of faculty; foster the professional development of faculty including the areas of teaching, research/creative activities, and outreach; and oversee the renovation of space in Romney Hall for an Office of
Faculty Development.

The position is intended to be a 10-month administrative appointment that will set the stage for a search that will lead to a permanent or long-term appointment.

Lockhart has been a member of the MSU faculty for 13 years. She became member of MSU's Teaching and Learning Committee in 2003 and served continuously for seven years, serving two years as chair. She left the committee in 2010 when she became president of the Adults in Higher Education Alliance, a national association.
