My name is Dr. Sheldon Walcher, and welcome to my online portfolio!
Throughout this site you will find information about my experiences as a college administrator, teacher, researcher, and educational consultant.
You might want to start with the highlights section, which will give you an overview of my skills and qualifications. For examples of some recent administrative initiatives, check out our Hybrid Course project, part of our HSS Schedule Redesign. You might also look at our Fast Path initiative. For more on my formal training and professional experience, feel free to check out my CV. You can also get a feel for my administrative approach by checking out my philosophy, and an overview of my leadership strengths and style.
