Webster University’s Office of Academic Affairs announced the retirements of longtime extended campus location directors Harry Schuler, Brian Daly and Diane Fagan.

Schuler: Irvine, California

Schuler retired after 13 years as director of Webster’s Irvine, California, campus, effective April 15. He plans to spend more time with family and friends before embarking on new adventures and challenges. He also plans to continue to teach part-time for Webster.

Schuler developed a positive, caring atmosphere at the Irvine campus, as evidenced by the many notes of thanks he received upon the announcement of his retirement.

He considers the impact he and his staff have had on the professional lives of students to be the most rewarding part of his job. “It’s all about the students,” he said. “Every day we need to do our best in support of their ‘Webster experience.’”

Daly: Louisville, Kentucky

Daly retired as director of Webster’s Louisville, Kentucky, campus, effective April 24. He joined Webster as a faculty member in 1986 and became site director in 2005.

Retirement for Daly means he can spend more time traveling with his wife. It also means he can devote more time to help establish the new Patient-Centered Education and Research Institute, a non-profit working to create certification standards for patient navigators (professionals who help patients through the health care system).

Daly also intends to continue teaching for Webster. “That’s where the fun is,” he said. “Watching the lights come on in week four of Statistics, realizing that we do have an impact on our students, that’s exciting and rewarding. Our strength lies in our instruction.”

Fagan: Fort Smith, Arkansas

Fagan retired after 24 years as director of Webster’s Fort Smith, Arkansas, campus, effective April 30.

She too looks forward to spending more time with her family. Fagan, who has been the face of the Fort Smith campus location since 1991, leaves behind a loyal alumni group who acknowledge Webster’s positive contribution to the Fort Smith area.
