March 13, 2014 — Parker University recently named Roxanne Elliott as its general education program director.
In her new role, Elliott will provide leadership and oversight to Parker University’s general education program, as well as direction over the university’s increasingly expansive catalogue of online courses.
“Roxanne’s background in higher education and integrated learning systems is the perfect fit for this role,” said Janell Gibson, vice president of online education at Parker University. “Her insights and experience will be tremendously valuable as Parker continues to grow and diversify our offering of both online and on-site degree programs.”
Elliott has previously served in both administrative and instructional roles within higher education. As an administrator, she has served as a Supplemental Education Services (SES) program director at Texas-based Syntelyses, campus director of Destiny Academy in Killeen, Texas, and campus director of Legacy Academy in Kaufman, Texas; as an instructor, she currently serves as an adjunct faculty member at Parker University and a professor at University of Phoenix. Previously, she taught at Concorde Career College, a health care-based college in Arlington, Texas, and as an instructional design consultant for Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.
In her former administrative and instructional roles, Elliott has been responsible for the design, development, and execution of various online and blended courses, as well as the implementation of new curriculum and teaching delivery systems.
Elliott is currently completing her doctoral studies in psychology at Capella University and holds a master’s degree in psychology from Tarleton State University, where she graduated magna cum laude. Elliott also completed the 18 hour graduate program in Educational Leadership from Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas and she was recipient of the Davidson Presidential Scholarship and the Frank and Sue Mayborn Endowment Scholarship.
Additionally, she served in the United States Army for three years as a communications specialist, where she was awarded the Army Lapel Button for Honorable Service, the Defense Service Medal, and the Army Service Ribbon, among other honors.
