NEW ALBANY, IN (June 18, 2013) – The Indiana University Southeast community honored Interim Chancellor Barb Bichelmeyer to campus with a reception this week.
Faculty, staff, students, and community members joined together to meet Bichelmeyer and welcome her to the University on Monday, June 17, in the Hoosier Room at IU Southeast.
Bichelmeyer, an Indiana University administrator and IU Bloomington education professor, was named interim chancellor at IU Southeast, effective July 1, earlier this month.
In addition to her faculty role in the IU School of Education’s Department of Instructional Systems Technology, Bichelmeyer currently serves as associate vice president for university academic policy and planning and is director of IU’s Office of Online Education. She succeeds Sandra Patterson-Randles, who retires as chancellor June 30 after 11 years in that role.
Bichelmeyer’s appointment will be for one year, as the university searches for a permanent chancellor for the campus that serves nearly 7,000 students, said John Applegate, IU’s executive vice president for university regional affairs, planning and policy.
