Designated Subjects Program Director

I am pleased to announce that Edith Thiessen will assume the duties of Designated Subjects program director.

As you know, the designated subjects program stopped admitting new students at the beginning of this past academic year, and ceased offering courses this past summer. Edith will assist those students currently enrolled in the program complete the additional program requirements.

Edith efforts will close out the work our previous directors Jo Ellen Misakian, who started the program at FPU, and Vicki Pontius, who oversaw its administration for the past three years. Jo Ellen retired from the university several years ago and Vicki is currently serving at another institution, assisting with their designated subjects program

Edith will continue in her current role as our part-time credentials analyst.

We so appreciate Edith stepping in to assume these responsibilities!
