Wichita State Dean to Join Baylor

Dr. Jon M. Engelhardt, who currently leads the College of Education at Wichita State University, will become dean of Baylor’s School of Education July 15.

“From the outset of our search for a dean for the School of Education, the university team has been unwavering in its commitment to finding a Baylor 2012 dean to lead the School,” Dr. Randall O’Brien, executive vice president and provost at Baylor, said. “Jon Engelhardt comes to Baylor 100 percent committed to building upon our twin pillars of academic and Christian excellence an ever greater Christian research university.”

“I am enormously pleased and honored to become part of Baylor University and its School of Education,” Engelhardt said. “Broadly respected for its strong programs in educator preparation and in health, human performance, and recreation, the School is poised to be recognized as world-class. I look forward to joining the Baylor team, working with faculty, staff, and the wider community to serve students as well as advance professional practice and extend its knowledge base.”

Engelhardt has served as dean of Wichita State’s College of Education since 1997. During his tenure, he focused the College’s programs, resources, and directions around a common mission, while strengthening the sense of community, program quality, use of technology, diversity, assessment and accreditation, resource development, partnerships, and research.

In addition to his administrative service at Wichita State, Engelhardt was executive director and dean of The Center for Excellence in Education at Northern Arizona University from 1992-1997, and dean of the College of Education at the University of Texas at El Paso from 1988-1992. For more than a decade, he served at ArizonaStateUniversity in several capacities, including coordinator of the MathematicsLearningCenter from 1974-1987, assistant/associate chair of the Department of Elementary Education from 1979-1982, department chair from 1982-1985, assistant dean (acting) for professional teacher preparation from 1985-1986, and college coordinator (director) of Teaching Centers from 1986-1987.
