Dean for Academic Affairs, Mount Mary University
Wendy A. Weaver became Mount Mary University’s Dean for Academic Affairs in 2013. As she pursued her Ph.D. in English (Marquette University), she found that her years as a tour guide in Alaska turned out to be surprisingly good preparation for navigating the challenges of the classroom (M.A. from University of Alaska-Anchorage). As a professor, she is deeply committed to promoting an actively engaged classroom and fostering an inclusive atmosphere. Wendy’s commitment to these ideals continues to be reflected in her institutional work, as she supports faculty through seminars and workshops to promote teaching excellence and coordinates Mount Mary’s first-year seminar, Leadership for Social Justice. She serves also as the President for the Wisconsin Women in Higher Education Leadership.
