Congratulations to Arkansas State University and Tim Hudson, who will become chancellor of ASU, according to today's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Hudson is vice chancellor of the Texas Tech University System and, before that, was a special assistant to the chancellor at the University of Houston System.
On the other side of the state, the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville has selected Eli Jones, dean of Louisiana State University's E.J. Ourso College of Business, to become dean of the UA's Sam M. Walton College of Business. He will also hold the Sam M. Walton Leadership Chair in Business. He replaces Dan Worrell, who will return to teaching and research at the college.
And, finally, what's to become of colleges and universities in this new world that's ever more virtual? That's the topic of a Clinton School of Public Service lecture at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 8, when Rich DeMillo of Georgia Institute of Technology talks about his book, Abelard to Apple: The Fate of American Colleges and Universities. Reservations for the lecture, which will be held in Sturgis Hall at the school, can be made by calling 501.683.5239 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
