New Distance Learning Director

Dr. Christine Mayer has joined Vol State as Director of Distance Learning. The start of a semester is never an easy time to join a higher education institution, but Mayer says she is glad she had the opportunity to see the challenges that come up. Once things calm down a bit she has a straightforward agenda.

“I’d like to build online enrollments, but with that needs to come really good customer service” she said. “I want to build a community of online learners. I’d also like to find some early adopter faculty members to try some new and interesting things with online classes.”

Mayer was most recently Manager of Instructional Design and Project Management at the University of Missouri System in Columbia. She has a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia and a Master of Arts degree from the University of Michigan.
