"Angela has assisted faculty and students across the University with their research studies," said Gerard Fowler, Ph.D., interim dean of the College of Education and Public Service. "In her new role, we will be relying on her to move the college's research agenda forward."
For her part, Walmsley said she's eager to combine her experiences in both departments to help advance the college.
"It's an exciting time to be at Saint Louis University," she said. "I'm looking forward to working with my SLU colleagues in this new role, and I'm particularly excited that I will be able to collaborate with my CEPS colleagues even more closely."
Walmsley brings something else to her new role: experience as a student. She completed her Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction at SLU in 2001. As a faculty member, her dedication to mentoring students earned her college's John DiTiberio Award in 2009.
On the national stage, Walmsley was named an "Emerging Leader" in 2008 by Phi Delta Kappa International, the premier professional association for educators. She also is serving as the Missouri area director for the organization.
The author of five books and numerous scholarly articles, Walmsley recently completed a sabbatical teaching mathematics at Emmanuel College in England.
Walmsley also is involved in the local community as well, including serving on the St. Louis Children’s Museum (The Magic House) board of directors since 2007.
