New Dean to lead Graduate College at Kennesaw State
A new dean has been announced to lead the Graduate College at Kennesaw State University. With more than three decades of experience in academia, Juliet Langman will assume the role, effective July 1.
An accomplished researcher, Langman comes to KSU from the University of Texas at San Antonio where she has worked since 1998 as a senior associate dean and associate dean of graduate studies in the College of Education and Human Development. In addition, she also holds a faculty position as professor of applied linguistics in the Department of Bicultural-Bilingual Studies at UTSA.
Langman’s research interests focus on minority youth populations in multilingual settings. She enjoys exploring the intersection between language use, language learning, identity, and academic development. Langman’s work has been published in multiple journals, books, and encyclopedias, including Classroom Discourse and Language and Education. She has been credited with improving graduate education across various disciplines and believes in focusing on collaborative decision-making, strategic student-centered growth in graduate education, and bold visioning through partnerships.
Langman earned a bachelor’s degree in French from Georgetown University and holds two degrees from Stanford University; a master’s degree in linguistics and a doctorate in language, literacy, and culture.
Langman will replace Sheb True, associate vice provost for Global Engagement, Professional Education, and Strategic Initiatives, who has been serving as the interim dean of the Graduate College.
