Lisa Brown has been appointed director of the Office of Extended Education (OEE) for the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University. Brown has been serving as interim director since September 2013, and previously, beginning in 2007, served as assistant director.
After graduating from Texas A&M with a BA in English, Brown earned a master’s degree in adult education with a concentration in technology management from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana.
Prior to joining the Bush School, Brown worked for the Department of Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution’s online degree program, where she created and implemented master’s program processes, strategy, and marketing programs.
During her time as interim director of OEE, Brown has expanded the online education programs by upgrading essential technology and implementing new scholarship and service opportunities for online students. “Lisa has been a key member of our online education team, working with faculty and students to strengthen and extend our online programs,” said Bush School executive associate dean, Arnie Vedlitz. “Under Lisa’s leadership, I’m confident we will see further enhancements of this important element of our overall educational offerings, which are especially critical for those students who cannot take advantage of our residency programs.”
