The University Foundations Program has announced that Candyce Reynolds will join the program as its new director. Reynolds holds a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from the University of Oregon. Her work at Boise State will be built upon a broad foundation of working with students and colleagues in the nationally recognized general education program at Portland State University where she has been a faculty member since 1996.
Reynolds is a national expert in integrative learning and the use of eportfolio to help students document and reflect on their learning. She said she is excited to devote her attention to the important role that general education plays in the role of every student at Boise State.
In her transition to Boise State, Reynolds will work part time and remotely through the fall semester. She will be on campus in the spring. The UF program has planned a welcome event near the start of the spring semester.
The provost’s office thanks the screening committee: Jeremy Harper, Dawn Shepherd, Kelly Myers, Guido Guitini, Beth Ramsey, Joe Champion and Kay Wingert, and Tamara Gandenberger. The program also thanks John Beiter, who has served as interim director for the UF program for the past five years. Bieter will take a sabbatical as he transitions back to his role as a faculty member in the history department.
