Message from the Interim Provost


Another Successful Dean Search!


Please join me in extending a warm Southeastern welcome to Dr. Paula Calderon. Pending approval by the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors, Dr. Calderon will become the Dean of the College of Education on August 27

Emerging from a national search that began in May, Dr. Calderon has more than eleven years of experience in leadership roles in education programs, with the most recent being Associate Director of the School of Education at LSU.  Her experience includes state, regional and national accountability reporting, program review, strategic planning, and redesign of teacher education programs.  Dr. Calderon also has extensive experience with national and state accreditation including NCATE/CAEP and SACSCOC.
As you know a successful search is not possible without committee members who are truly dedicated to the process -- especially when it spans the summer! My sincere thanks to all the members of the search committee which included students, faculty, a school principal, a department head and chaired by the Dean of the College of Science and Technology.
With Dr. Calderon's impressive credentials and demonstrated leadership abilities, she will be a great fit for our Southeastern family.  
Welcome to Lion Nation, Dr. Calderon!
