Lori Carrell, Interim USP Director
Lori Carrell (Communication) is serving as the Interim Director of the University Studies Program after facilitating the general education reform process. Says Carrell, “Being a part of this curricular transformation has been such a privilege. The work is creative, but more than that, it’s given me the opportunity to become aware of the excellence of our campus community. UW Oshkosh is home to so many amazing and committed people. I look forward to witnessing the impact of our collective efforts on student learning.”
