Hopefully by now, the remnants of winter have melted away, and the newness of spring is well under way. Since we are on the topic of all things new, you may have already heard that Luther College has elected the 10th president in the college’s history, and her name is Dr. Paula J. Carlson. Students, faculty, and staff had the opportunity to meet her in late February, when she and her husband, the Reverend Dr. Thomas Schattauer, visited campus. Currently vice president for mission at St. Olaf College, Dr. Carlson will bring an abundance of teaching and administrative experience to Luther, having taught at St. Mary’s College, Notre Dame, Ind.; Yale University; the University of Wisconsin-Platteville; and the University of Dubuque.
