Dr. Myrna Perez Sheldon, Assistant Professor of Classics & World Religions, was named the new executive director of Ohio University’s Cutler Scholars program, reports Ohio University News in a story headlined “Cutler Scholars Program names new executive director.”

Perez Sheldon, an assistant professor in the Department of Classics and World Religions and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program, will have primary responsibility for the oversight and development of the program’s academic curriculum.

The Cutler Scholars Program is one of Ohio University’s most comprehensive merit scholarship programs. Students receive a four-year merit scholarship as well as additional funds each year to support travel, research, community engagement, and internships.

“Dr. Perez Sheldon is an extremely accomplished scholar who breathes interdisciplinarity,” said Donal Skinner, dean of the Honors Tutorial College. “She is a true polymath, working at the intersection between religion, women, and gender studies and science, working tirelessly to make intellectual discussion accessible to all. Indeed, I cannot think there is a better-suited scholar at Ohio University to lead the academic vision of the Cutler Scholars Program.”
