Dr. Donal C. Skinner has been named the dean of the Honors Tutorial College at Ohio University.
Skinner will take over the role July 15. He is currently a professor of endocrinology in the Department of Zoology and Physiology at the University of Wyoming. At the Laramie-based campus, Skinner has also served as the dean of Wyoming's Honors College since 2017.
The Honors Tutorial College at OU offers top-level students a number of academic programs to be completed one-on-one with a professor or with a small group of students. Such programs range from business administration and computer science to art history and film.
Skinner takes over for interim dean Cary Frith, who served in the role for two years after longtime dean Jeremy Webster left the Honors Tutorial College to become campus dean of OU's Zanesville branch.
