New College of Education associate dean to focus on research

By C. Brandon Chapman, College of Education

roth-mcduffieamy-5-5-2011-80pPULLMAN, Wash. – Amy Roth McDuffie is the new associate dean for research and external funding in the College of Education.

“Amy is a top-notch researcher, and she has a track record of funding, including federal grants,” said Dean Mike Trevisan “Without question, she leads by example” in building relationships, consensus around best practices and financial backing.

“She is incredibly enthusiastic about everyone’s research and really wants to make sure that we have time to do it,” said assistant professor of science education Rich Lamb.

Roth McDuffie (https://education.wsu.edu/mcduffie/), who has been at Washington State University Tri-Cities since 1998, succeeds Tim Church (https://education.wsu.edu/church/), who will retire in October.

“Tim very ably put us in a position to move our research and external funding efforts even higher,” Trevisan said.

“One of my primary roles will be to support faculty in connecting to the Grand Challenges and relevant external funding opportunities,” said Roth McDuffie, referring to WSU research priorities set as part of vice president for research Chris Keane’s 120-day study.

“Not only do we conduct research squarely focused on issues in K-12 education, sport management and kinesiology, but we also collaborate with other colleges and programs by conducting research related to program evaluation and teaching and learning in higher education,” Roth McDuffie said. “We have researchers who employ qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods that draw upon both research paradigms.”

“Nobody will do as well as Amy in this position in showing how our college is on the forefront of very compelling research,” Trevisan said.
