(Neb)-Hyer Leaving CSC For Missouri Western State University
CHADRON - Chadron State College Dean of Business, Mathematics, & Science Dr Joel Hyer has been named Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Missouri Western State University in St Joseph.
He will begin his duties Monday, July 1, succeeding Dr Murray Nabors, who is returning to full-time teaching.
Hyer came to Chadron State in 2001 as an assistant professor of history and went on to serve as director of the history and American Indian studies programs, head of the social science program, and department chair before being named dean in 2011.
As dean, Hyer helped develop and implement Chadron State's reaccreditation plan for the Higher Learning Commission, resulting in full reaffirmation in 2017.
Missouri Western interim provost and vice president for academic affairs Dr Douglas Davenport says Hyer brings a wealth of experience and leadership skills that will serve his new school well as it moves forward.
Hyer calls it "truly such an honor" to join Missouri Western and believes that together they will "accomplish some wonderful things."
