West Virginia University at Parkersburg has named faculty member Chad Crumbaker interim vice president for academic affairs. He began his new role on Monday, April 3.
Crumbaker earned a bachelor’s degree in international studies from the University of South Carolina and a juris doctor degree from Capital University Law School. He worked as an attorney for the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals from 2007 to 2014. He is a member of the Ohio, West Virginia, American, Wood County, and Washington County Bar Associations. He is an active board member and serves as chair of the Youth Activities Committee for the Rotary Club of Parkersburg.
Having served as an adjunct faculty member for WVU Parkersburg since 2008, Crumbaker became a full-time faculty member and coordinator of the legal studies program in 2014. In May 2016, he was named Business, Accounting and Public Service division chair.
“I am thrilled to have Chad serve our institution in this capacity,” said Dr. Fletcher Lamkin, president of WVU Parkersburg. “We felt it was important to have an experienced faculty member take on this position to help with transition. I am confident he will excel in this role over the next year.”
