Dr. Jim Eddy will step down as UNCG Online dean at end of 2018/19

After six years as dean of UNCG Online, Dr. James M. Eddy will step down as dean in July 2019. He will return as a professor. As Provost Dunn said in announcing the news, “Eddy will return to teaching some of the online courses he has helped to create.”

The provost noted several key milestones during his tenure:

  • the design, implementation, and marketing of the highly successful Ed.D program in Kinesiology,
  • the recent launch of the interdisciplinary, online Bachelor of Science in Integrated Professional Studies program,
  • the transformation of Summer Session to offer more online courses to meet student demand and reduce time to degree
  • and the creation of the UNCG Online Academy of Online Professors.

In his six-year tenure as dean, she noted:

  • UNC Greensboro has experienced a steady growth in the number of fully online students and in overall online student credit hours generation.
  • Under Jim’s leadership UNCG has become an “academic entrepreneur” combining traditional academic values with new technologies, innovative curricular design, faculty engagement, and student support services.

“Please join me in thanking him for his important contributions to UNCG,” the provost said.

A national search for the next dean will be conducted this fall. Details will be announced soon.
