New HSU provost takes office in July


Arkansas Online/Tri-Lakes Edition –  Classes were canceled and the campus was closed early Tuesday at Henderson State University because of a shower of ice pellets, but not before the introduction of a new provost and vice president of academic affairs, HSU’s second-highest-ranking administrator.

Risa Dickson is currently the associate provost for academic personnel at California State University, San Bernardino, where she manages 415 full-time faculty and 460 adjunct faculty for the college of around 20,000 students.

Henderson State President Glen Jones praised Dickson, who has a doctorate in interpersonal and organizational communication from the University of Southern California, for her “wealth of diverse experiences” in higher education.
