BOCA RATON — Katrina Carter-Tellison was recently named dean of Lynn’s College of Liberal Education after serving as the chair of the university’s nationally-recognized, innovative core curriculum, The Dialogues of Learning, and as associate professor of sociology.

“Dr. Carter-Tellison brings an intimate knowledge of our core curriculum and teaching philosophies to her new role as dean of the College of Liberal Education,” said Lynn University President Kevin M. Ross.

“As one of the key people responsible for implementing our new core that puts liberal education at its center, I can’t think of a better choice and more capable, deserving person for this role.”

As faculty chair of the core, her work focused on course development, assessment and faculty development throughout every stage of the implementation process for the new curriculum.

In February, one of higher education’s most prestigious national trade publications, Inside Higher Ed, published an article which held Lynn’s new core curriculum up as a shining example of how colleges and universities can increase the rigor of their academic offerings and improve the comprehensive education of their students.

“Dr. Carter-Tellison has been instrumental in the implementation of our new core curriculum,” Cynthia Patterson, vice president for academic affairs, said. “Her colleagues praise her as a thoughtful, dedicated and passionate educator who is deeply devoted to both student learning and excellence in every phase of academic life.  I have no doubt Dr. Carter-Tellison will excel as dean of the College of Liberal Education, and I am delighted to welcome her as the newest member of our academic leadership team.”

“The most important part of leadership is service. I hope to lead with respect, compassion, and equity,” Carter-Tellison said. “As an educator, it has always been my goal to inspire students to have a thirst for knowledge and the world around them. As the dean of College of Liberal Education, I will work hard to be a resource and advocate for faculty and students while continuing my work in the Dialogues of Learning. I will continue the tradition of building and delivering a strong liberal arts education in my new role.”

Prior to coming to Lynn, Carter-Tellison earned her Ph.D. in sociology at the University of Miami. Her major area of concentration was race and ethnic relations with a minor concentration in cultural studies and criminology.
