An Ursuline College faculty member has been elected to the five-member board of a national organization supporting the liberal arts.
Mimi Pipino, PhD, director of curriculum and the Ursuline core curriculum, was made one of three council-at-large members of the governing body of the Association for General and Liberal Studies (AGLS). She will serve a two-year term.
“I am delighted that the AGLS has recognized Dr. Pipino’s leadership in liberal arts higher education,” said Kathryn LaFontana, PhD, Ursuline’s vice president for academic affairs. “She has spearheaded insightful updates to Ursuline’s core curriculum and will serve this national body well.”
Founded in 1963, the AGLS is a community of practitioner-scholars that provides strategic, effective and innovative support for peers engaged in the day-to-day work of general and liberal learning in 21st century higher education. Its 150 members represent more than 80 colleges and universities and the group communicates with a mailing list of over 3,000 professionals nationwide.
