Dr. Crutsinger Appointed as Faculty Special Assistant to the Provost
Spring, 2009

When Dr. Christy Crutsinger, Associate Dean and Professor in Merchandising, assumed the appointment as Faculty Special Assistant to the Provost, she didn’t realize just how much she would miss the classroom.   For a two-year period, Crutsinger will work with Dr. Wendy Wilkins, UNT Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, to develop programs that ensure faculty at all levels are effective teachers and productive scholars.  "By encouraging faculty vitality and leadership development, I hope to improve the overall UNT student experience," notes Crutsinger.  "Students rely on faculty for their breadth of knowledge, professional contacts, and the enthusiasm they bring to the classroom.  Although I am not actually in the classroom, I am helping students, by developing faculty."


During the first six months on the job, Crutsinger has examined the work-life issues of UNT second-year junior faculty and partnered with Harvard University on a grant proposal examining senior faculty job satisfaction. In addition to her responsibilities as Associate Dean for SMHM including scholarships, alumni relations, recruitment, and marketing, Crutsinger serves on several key university committees including the Athletic Council and Co-Chair of the Commencement Committee.  "These are exciting times to affect change at UNT. I am energized by the opportunity to serve our great institution."
