KU communication studies professor is a finalist for MU post

February 9, 2010


A Kansas University communication studies professor is a finalist to become the new vice provost for advanced studies and dean of the graduate school at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Diana Carlin was dean of the graduate school and international programs at KU from 2000-07. She has also served as dean-in-residence and director of international outreach at the Council of Graduate Schools in Washington.

She has previously been a finalist for two other prominent university openings, including the presidencies of Pittsburg State University and Evansville University, which is in Indiana.

She is one of four announced finalists for the position at Missouri, and will visit the campus later this month.

Ha. Wish I could be there to see the look on her face when she steps out of the car in Columbia and gets her first whiff of that town's stench. That place has a serious sewage problem and/or there are bodies decaying somewhere. I don't know how people live in that disgusting town.

It would be a shame to lose her to another school. She was one of my favorites in the department and did a tremendous job! I wish her the best but selfishly I hope KU can hold onto her incredible wealth of knowledge. Either way, best of luck Dr. Carlin!

Diana Carlin is one of the good ones. In teaching, much of the time, it is not easy to follow the money. If you can do it, good for you!
