Director of Interdisciplinary Studies Position Open Forum

The search committee for the position of director of interdisciplinary studies (DIS) has narrowed the field of applicants to three candidates: Scott Alberts, associate professor of mathematics; Michael Kelrick, professor of biology; and James Padfield, associate professor of health and exercise science. The next step in the process is for each candidate to appear in a campuswide open forum which members of the Truman community are encouraged to attend; each candidate will also interview with the deans and department heads in special meetings later this month, and each candidate will also interview with Garry Gordon, provost and vice president for academic affairs, and Adam Davis, current DIS.

Open Forum
1:30 p.m. - James Padfield
2:30 p.m. - Michael Kelrick
3:30 p.m. - Scott Alberts
Jan. 16
Violette Hall 1000

Each candidate will appear for approximately 30 to 40 minutes.

The forum is open to everyone on campus—faculty, staff, and students. Those who are able to attend will be able to provide feedback to the committee (forms will be available at the forum).

The complete job description and each candidate’s letter of application and curriculum vitae are available online at
