Former BGSU vice provost returns for presentations

Dr. Mary McKinney Edmonds returns to BGSU Feb. 27 through March 1 to discuss competence, nurturing leaders and ethnogerontology.

Edmonds served as dean of the College of Health and Community Services at BGSU in 1982. She was promoted to vice president for student affairs and later to vice provost.

Three campus events are planned during her visit, beginning with a reception for faculty and staff from 7-8:30 p.m. Feb. 27 in the McFall Center Gallery.

Edmonds will give a presentation for organization leaders and members titled “Nurturing Leaders—Knowing Who You Are, Whose You Are and Where You Are Going,” from 1:30-3 p.m. Feb. 28 in 207 Bowen-Thompson Student Union.

She will also give a lecture on “Cultural Competence,” open to all, from 3-5:30 p.m. March 1 in 201 Union.

Edmonds left BGSU in 1992 to become vice president for student affairs—and later vice provost—and clinical professor of health research and policy at Stanford University. During her years there, she was supervised by Dr. Condoleezza Rice, now secretary of state.

Edmonds retired from Stanford in 1997 as vice provost emerita.
