Kaml named interim leader of Extended University Programs

Jan. 27, 2009

KALAMAZOO--Dr. Craig Kaml has been named interim associate provost for Extended University Programs and will lead that unit while the University conducts a national search for a new associate provost to oversee WMU's branch campuses and distance education initiatives.

Kaml's appointment was announced last week by Dr. Timothy J. Greene, WMU provost and vice president for academic affairs.

Kaml has served since 2007 as director of distance education, a department in EUP that includes Academic Technology and Instructional Services--ATIS. Prior to that, he had served as director of ATIS since 2002. Kaml replaces Dean Darrell Johnson in the EUP leadership role. Johnson left WMU last month to accept a position at Ohio State University.

Kaml came to WMU in 2002 from North Carolina, where he had served as assistant director for distance learning at East Carolina University since 2000. Previously, he was director of instructional technology for the Teacher Education Program at Elizabeth City State University in North Carolina from 1996 to 2000, an instructional computer technology support specialist at Craven Community College in North Carolina from 1993 to 1996 and a Hawk missile systems repair/electronic technician in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1988 to 1993.

He earned a bachelor's degree from North Carolina Wesleyan College in 1994 and masters and doctoral degrees from East Carolina University in 1996 and 2001, respectively.
