Charlotte Skinner has been named the interim associate dean of academic affairs at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College.

New Interim Associate Dean of Academic Affairs Charlotte Skinner

Skinner earned her undergraduate degree in mathematics from the State University of New York at Binghamton and her master’s degree in mathematics from Indiana University before starting a very accomplished career as an educator. Her experience includes serving as a math tutor and part-time professor at UC Blue Ash before becoming tenured as a professor of mathematics in 2002. She also spent a few years earlier in her career as a math tutor in Singapore and has focused much of her research on a teaching model she developed that helps promote effective study skills and autonomous learning.

“Professor Skinner is ideal to fill this role because of her dedication to exceptional teaching, her knowledge of curricular issues, her ability to manage multiple complex projects, and her student-centered focus,” says Robin Lightner, interim dean of UC Blue Ash College. “She is already part of the major academic initiatives at the college, and has effective working relationships with students, faculty and department chairs. I look forward to her leadership this year.”

As associate dean of academic affairs, Skinner will oversee the college’s 14 academic departments and nearly 50 degree and certificate programs, which include two bachelor’s degrees. She will also manage other academic initiatives.
