Director of Academic Affairs announced
Chancellor Kevin Snider announces the appointment of Andrea Adolph as director of academic affairs at Penn State New Kensington. Adolph will replace retiring director of academic affairs Arlene Hall.
“Dr. Adolph really impressed us during her interview,” Snider said. “Her knowledge of the issues we face as a campus, ideas for overcoming challenges, way with people and character are all strengths that seem like a perfect fit and will be tremendous assets as we build an even better Penn State New Kensington.”
Currently an associate professor of English and coordinator of service-learning at Kent State University at Stark, Adolph is looking forward to her new role.
“I am excited to be joining the community of faculty, staff, and students at Penn State New Kensington,” she said. “When visiting the campus, I was impressed by the level of engagement and dedication that I found in all areas of the institution, and it is obvious to me that I will be joining a group of people who work daily to ensure that students there receive a fantastic educational experience.”
Adolph holds a Ph.D. in English Literature from Louisiana State University. In addition to her administrative and instructional experience, in her current position at Kent State University at Stark, she has been involved in academic planning and program development.
