Connie Foster has been selected as Dean of the University Libraries at WKU. Foster, who served as interim Dean since March of last year, has been working at the institution since 1978. Provost Gordon Emslie says Foster has demonstrated her ability to lead the libraries during a period of significant change. Foster was selected as Dean after a comprehensive national search was conducted.
Foster says she is pleased to "accept this key leadership position" and plans to help develop a strategy for a "21st century library" at WKU.
