Breaking News: Human Development Welcomes “New” Faculty Member!

Human Development is simply thrilled to announce that Dr. Dean Rodeheaver will be back in our department full-time beginning in the Spring 2008 semester! He may be a new face to students, but he has actually been at UW-Green Bay for many years and has a reputation as an amazing teacher. He returns to Human Development after serving 12 years as Assistant Chancellor for Planning and Budget.  His degrees are from the Life Span Developmental program at West Virginia University (he’s a Mountaineer, born and raised), and he has been at UW-Green Bay since 1983.  His specialty was in middle-age and aging, and he served the local community for many years as a member and chair of the Brown County Commission on Aging (now the Aging and Disability Resource Center).  As Assistant Chancellor, he was responsible for the campus budget, strategic planning, budget requests to the state, master plan, and management of building projects including Mary Ann Cofrin Hall, Lab Sciences, Kress Events Center, and the University Union.  He currently serves as the Campus Sustainability Coordinator and is active in community organizations dealing with sustainable planning.  His teaching interests include sports psychology, public policy and the life span, sustainability issues, and planning and budgeting. He will be teaching Introduction to Human Development in the Spring, as well as an exciting new course: Public Policy Across the Life Span.
