Pannell is the Q.G. Noblitt Professor of Economics and Management at DePauw.
"As did Kerry Pannell before her, Terri brings a wealth of experience to this position, including five years as chair of the psychology department, four years on the Faculty Development Committee, three years as the Faculty Development Coordinator, and one year on the Committee on Faculty," noted David T. Harvey, DPU vice president for academic affairs and professor of chemistry and biochemistry.
In addition, Harvey said Bonebright is a frequent organizer of and participant in on-campus workshops, reading groups and symposia.
"DePauw has recognized Terri's many contributions to the university through its Exemplary Teaching Award and the Johnson Family University Professorship," Harvey added. "I very much look forward to working with Terri during the coming academic year."
