In the News: Viele on Online Learning; Seurkamp Retires from Notre Dame

| June 19, 2012

Recent news coverage mentioning Webster University includes:


Dan Viele, director of the Online Learning Center, was on a recent RCGA panel of St. Louis-area higher ed leaders discussing the costs of college education. The event was covered by the St. Louis Beacon here. Viele discussed the growth of online programs at Webster University, which involves some 9,000 students in 64 countries. Viele also noted the increasing occasions when online students find Webster because of its convenience — then end up heading to St. Louis for commencement when they complete their degree.

Webster alumna Mary Pat Seurkamp was the subject of a profile in the Baltimore Sun on the occasion of her retiring after 15 years leading Notre Dame University of Maryland. Seurkamp was the university’s first lay president and will be succeeded by its first male president. Notre Dame continues to be a women’s undergraduate college, though it is co-educational in its graduate and evening offerings.
