Judith Grant, who holds a Ph. D. from Rutgers University, held an open forum for faculty and students
Grant did not hesitate to lay out her vision for the future of the College in a presentation which discussed the challenges currently faced by A&S, and the potential solutions she sees.
"My desire to be dean comes out of my passion for the liberal arts," said Grant in her brief introduction, setting the tone for the forum.
She went on to talk about the strategic problems she sees in the College, and was unafraid to point out the flaws with the current status quo in A&S. She claimed a need for a "strategic vision and brand" for A&S, which she says will help raise money and bring in faculty and students.
One of the biggest problems she addressed was the current budgetary situation, citing it as the root source of issues such as bringing in faculty, encouraging research and building strong graduate programs which can compete with other ACC schools. Grant said her priority was to ensure that students and faculty can "do what they want to do" at the university.
The majority of the program was devoted to a question and answer section.
"What is your take on where advising fits? asked one adviser, prompting a discussion on the role of advising in retention. Grant discussed the importance of having advisers who can offer students direction in their future, and said that changes in advising may be a solution to the retention issues currently faced by U of L. She came in well-versed on U of L, mentioning her awareness of the university's issues with retaining second and third year students.
The question and answer session ended up being more of a discussion between the faculty and Grant. At one point, she asked a faculty member, "Do you have any ideas," encouraging the audience to share their own vision for the College with her. She had earlier cited this very "collaborative ability" as one of the reasons she would be a good dean.
Grant is the current Chair of the Department of Political Science at Ohio University, where she has been a professor since 2003.

The event opened with a speech by Judith Grant, Director of the Women's and Gender Studies Department at Ohio University. She spoke out against Senate Bill 5, which would be voted on later that afternoon.
"The faceless entity of the corporation is not politically accountable to any system of ethics or justice. The only way they are stopped is if they go out of business," she said. "The public is being put out of business. And we all need to be in the business of saving the public."
Grant pointed out that faculty members are now expected to teach more classes for less money.
"Everyone is working harder for less pay. Everyone is paying more for less," she said. "As universities are forced to cut resources because of declining state support, tuition rises, making it increasingly impossible for average and working and middle class people to earn their degrees."
Grant called on the audience to fight Kasich and the threatened cuts to education.
"We can fight back. We can empower our administrators with our numbers, our passion and our commitment, to go to Columbus and to tell Governor Kasich: 'Hell no.' You say cut back, and we say fight back," she said.
Tyler Barton, a senior chemistry major who contributed much to this session, spoke after Grant.

Fantastic article. Thanks so much for covering this important event, and for doing it so well. Picture identified as Judith Grant is, however, Debb Thorne from Sociology.
