‘Boro APSCUF chapter appoints interim president by Shayma Musa

The Edinboro University branch of the Association of Pennsylvania State and University Faculty (APSCUF) is now under the leadership of interim president Victoria Hedderick. 

Hedderick, an associate professor at Edinboro, will be in office until the beginning of the 2020-21 academic year. Dr. Marc Sylvester will resume the position after his sabbatical. 

“I have to say that everyone has been amazing. All the different committees within APSCUF, everyone has been extremely supportive. People have been really great about emailing me, letting me know about stuff and just being incredibly supportive,” Hedderick said. 

“I have to give kudos out to provost (Michael) Hannan, as well as President (Guiyou) Huang, because I meet with them on a monthly basis and they have been incredibly accommodating and have made me feel incredibly welcome. I always love a challenge, and this is going to be a challenge.” 

Procedure mandates that interim presidents get release time, which allows them a lighter teaching load. However, because of an unexpected medical emergency, the faculty member who was supposed to take the interim role was not able to do so. This meant Hedderick took on the role while also teaching a full course load.
