UW-RF Names Rebhuhn Associate Provost

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls has named Barbara Rebhuhn as Associate Provost and Vice Chancellor. Her appointment took effect on Aug. 1.

Provost Robert L. Milam said Rebhuhn "has many outstanding credentials, experiences at the University, but also importantly, she has many years of experience in public schools. Dr. Rebhuhn has been with UW-River Falls since 1991 where she has been an admired faculty member of the Department of Psychology."

As the associate provost, Rebhuhn will assist Milam in the oversight of all academic programs, including assessment, curriculum development, grants and research, and international programs.

Psychology chair Rik Seefeld noted that Rebhuhn made major contributions to the department as an excellent teaching and through her administration of the learning disabilities certification program for teaching candidates.

Rebhuhn received her bachelor's with a major in elementary and special education from the University of South Dakota. She earned a M.S.E. degree from UW-River Falls, with a major in school psychology, and a doctorate in educational administration from UW-Madison. From 1987-1991 she was an UW-RF ad-hoc faculty member teaching courses for the department of psychology.

Prior to working with UW-RF, Rebhuhn was the special education director for the School District of River Falls.

During the 1994-95 academic year, The Johns Hopkins University Medical School in Baltimore awarded Rebhuhn a post-fellowship at The Kennedy Krieger Institute, Center for Learning and Its Disorders.

Rebhuhn was awarded an administrative internship in the Provost & Vice Chancellor office during the past spring semester. She was awarded the Outstanding Faculty Member of the Year in the behavior science division in the College of Arts & Sciences in 1998.
