President Armacost talks with new faculty member about bus tour, collaboration across campus

For his first video address of the semester, President Andrew Armacost interviews one of UND’s newest faculty members.

Fresh off the annual New UND Faculty & Administrators Bus Tour, a multi-day tour of North Dakota, Tennessee native Lee Ann Williams shares her impressions of the Peace Garden State.

An incoming Clinical Assistant Professor and Director of the Undergraduate Rehabilitation and Human Services Program, Williams says she was impressed by a number of stops on the tour, including the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park and Turtle Mountain Community College in Belcourt.

Armacost asks Williams about her background and what led her to joining the faculty at the College of Education & Human Development.

Williams, whose academic work focuses on disabilities and rehabilitation, says the social experience of the tour helped her understand the need to foster collaboration in her work and the work of the College.

Armacost remarks that the tour is but one example of how all members of the campus community can “come together as one” in the new semester, with opportunities aplenty.
