Dr. John A. ArthurDr. John A. Arthur
UMD Chancellor Lendley C. Black has announced that Dr. John A. Arthur has been chosen to be the new Chancellor's Faculty Fellow for Strategic Planning effective August 1, 2012.

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.
