Belmont's Notre Dame de Namur University gets new provost
July 30, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

Paul Ewald

Notre Dame de Namur University announced yesterday that Paul Ewald, Ph.D. will be its new provost, starting at the Belmont school on Sept. 1.

Ewald has served as dean of Regis College at Regis University in Denver, Colo. since 2002.

He was formerly associate to the chancellor at Antioch University and held faculty appointments at Westmar College, the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and the University of New England.

He completed a post-doctoral fellowship in gerontology in the Alaskan interior, a Fulbright Scholar’s award in Hungary and a Fulbright-Hayes team project in Brazil. Ewald has a B.A. from Creighton University, an M.S.Ed. from Eastern Illinois University and a Ph.D. in educational psychology from the University of Florida.

“I was attracted to NDNU for many reasons including its small size, its rich Catholic heritage and the heritage of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur,” Ewald said in a press release. “At a time when all the talk about higher education seems to center on job preparation, I appreciate NDNU’s insistence on maintaining a strong focus on the liberal arts as well as professionally-oriented learning.”

Ewald succeeds Diana Demetrulias, Ph.D. who announced her retirement earlier this year.
