The University of New Orleans has named Kim Long dean of the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Education and Human Development.
Long previously served as the founding dean of the College of Business and Humanities at Delaware Valley University. She notes that the merging of liberal arts and education is a more likely combination than her previous position.
The merger of the two colleges is aiming to provide UNO more efficiency, additional collaborative opportunities between disciplines, and cost savings.
Long earned her doctorate in American Literature in 1993 and is working on two books, including a textbook that focuses on pedagogical methods for teaching English and literature. The second is a study of five American novels through an eco-feminism point of view.
Long has met with local school superintendents to facilitate stronger partnerships between the university and the school districts and to facilitate improved teacher training.
