Christina Kline to serve as Interim Director of Distance Learning

Christina Kline has been appointed interim director of UW-Superior's Distance Learning Center. She will replace Dr. Peter Nordgren who retires on Dec. 10. Nordgren, a 27-year employee of UW-Superior, has served as the associate dean for Distance Learning and Continuing Education since 2006. In addition, he has been the interim associate vice chancellor for Academic Affairs and Outreach since 2010.

"Christina is an excellent choice to serve as interim director," said Nordgren. "She has great experience working with nontraditional students, University faculty and teaching staff. She is also committed to our service to northern Wisconsin and the state."

Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Dr. Faith Hensrud, echoed these sentiments. "We are sad to see Peter go, as he leaves a tremendous legacy as a member of UW-Superior in a variety of roles. I am confident that Christina will build on the Center's past successes and take advantage of the opportunities that stand before us."

Kline has been an advisor in the Distance Learning Center for nearly four years; since 2010 she has served as the program manager for advisement. She also teaches a course in Individualized Educational Planning online. Prior to working at the Center, she managed the program now called Road Scholar at the University's Center for Continuing Education for 12 years.

"I love the energy and excitement of working at a small university, where we have the opportunity to get to know our colleagues and students," said Kline. "While I have extremely large shoes to fill, I look forward to making a positive contribution to the Center's growth. We have a devoted and professional staff that cares a great deal about our students and their success."

Kline was born in Okinawa, Japan, and raised in St. Paul, MN, and Montreal, Quebec. She earned her bachelor's degree from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in speech communication and French and her master's from the University of Wisconsin-Superior in communicating arts.
