Dr. Pamela Fry, Dean of the OSU College of Education, has been named Associate Provost and Associate Vice President, Undergraduate Education in the OSU Office of Academic Affairs.  The appointment is subject to the approval of the OSU/A&M Board of Regents at its Jan. 21 meeting.
"The search and screening committee, chaired by Dr. John Mowen, identified two outstanding finalists for the position of Associate Provost & Associate Vice President, Undergraduate Education.  The committee identified a pool of highly qualified candidates, all of whom were very committed to enhancing the undergraduate educational experience of our students," said Provost Robert Sternberg.
Fry has served as Dean of the OSU College of Education since 2005.  Prior to coming to OSU in 2001 to assume the role of Head, School of Teaching and Curriculum Leadership, Fry served as a faculty member and administrator at the University of Oklahoma for 12 years.  Fry, a full professor in the area of Curriculum Studies, holds a bachelor’s degree with highest honors from OU where she was named a top 10 senior women and was named as one of the top 75 Alumni in the history of the OU College of Education.
She received a master’s degree in Applied Behavioral Studies and a doctoral degree in Curriculum and Supervision at Oklahoma State, where she was named Outstanding Graduate Student in 1989.
Fry’s research and teaching focuses on the analysis, supervision, and improvement of P-12 and college teaching as well as on policy issues related to teacher education and education in general.  In 1996, she received the Distinguished Researcher Award from the Association of Teacher Educators.  She also edited Action in Teacher Education, one of the premier journals in teacher education.
Over her career, Fry has provided leadership to teacher education at local, state, and national levels including service as editor of one of the top national journals in teacher education and, currently, as a member of the board of directors for the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education.

During Fry’s tenure as dean, the OSU College of Education more than doubled its endowment, added 14 new endowed faculty lines, increased student scholarships by more than 30 percent, and established the Watson Family Student Academic Success Center.
