Chancellor’s Faculty Fellow Appointed
Arthur is well qualified to take the planning initiatives to the next stages of implementation, and to provide a faculty perspective to the Chancellor's Cabinet. He is a professor of sociology-anthropology and is the founding director of the African and African American Studies Program. He has been a faculty member at UMD since 1993, and he has served in several administrative positions including department chair and director of the Study in England program. He has a Ph.D. in sociology from Pennsylvania State University, a master's degree from the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, Canada, and a law and sociology degree from the University of Science and Technology in Ghana. Arthur will work closely this fall with Dr. Denny Falk, the outgoing Faculty Fellow.
