It is always exciting to welcome someone “back to the fold,” and welcoming Jennifer Mattingly back as our new Chair of the Division of Professional Studies/Chair of Faculty is no exception. Jennifer originally joined Judson University in 2002; and during her initial 17 years here, she held a variety of roles within the Professional Studies programs including Director of Marketing and Enrollment, Program Chair, and Director of Curriculum Services. Further, she has developed curriculum and taught for both the traditional and professional studies programs. Prior to being appointed to her new role, Jennifer served in Northern Illinois University’s Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning, where she provided faculty development programming focused on online courses and programs.
Jennifer holds a Masters in Organizational Leadership and a Bachelors in Business Administration & Graphic Design. She is currently pursuing her Doctorate in Higher Education Administration. As Chair of the Division of Professional Studies, Jennifer will provide administrative oversight to several degree programs, support Program Chairs, and maintain external relationships. As Chair of Faculty, she will partner with the Provost’s office to support faculty and coordinate faculty development opportunities. Welcome home, Jennifer, welcome home!
