Dr. John McArthur to chair State Regents Council on Instruction

Dr. John McArthur, Vice President for Academic Affairs at Cameron University, has been elected Chair of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education’s Council on Instruction for the 2010-11 academic year.

The Council on Instruction considers academic and related issues affecting Oklahoma higher education, proposes academic and related policy and procedures and serves as the principal statewide advisory council rendering advice and counsel to the Chancellor, other advisory groups and the entire state system. Membership is comprised of the chief academic officers of each of the 25 institutions in the state system as designated by the president of the institution.

“It has been my privilege to serve on the Council of Instruction for the past four years,” says Dr. McArthur. “Working together, the individuals who sit on the Council on Instruction strive to ensure that Oklahoma’s institutions of higher education maintain the highest quality academic standards. I am honored that my fellow council members have elected me Chair for the upcoming academic year.”

Dr. McArthur joined the Cameron faculty in July 2004 as Dean of the School of Science and Technology and was named Vice President for Academic Affairs in August 2006. He holds an undergraduate degree in mathematics from Rice University as well as master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
