In May, Dr. Craig Fuchs was selected to be the new leader of the PSU Honors College. The Honors College guides high-achieving students through enriched academic experiences during their time on campus. The director of the college recruits, oversees the selection of, and cultivates those students, who take intensive courses and complete more rigorous requirements for graduation.
Fuchs, who has served as chairman of the Music Department since 2002, will continue to teach in the department and also to conduct the wind ensemble and to oversee the department’s master’s program in wind conducting.
Fuchs said that in his new role, he hopes to increase students’ opportunities to study internationally, take field trips in order to provide experiential learning, and bring in guest speakers, as well as create new interdisciplinary courses.
