New administrator hired for Northwest Kansas City Center in Liberty

Dr. Terry Barmann has been hired by Northwest as the new assistant director of outreach for the University's Northwest Kansas City enter in Liberty. He begins his new duties on June 1.

A former member of the Northwest faculty, Barmann was an assistant professor in the Department of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance for 12 years before relocating to the Kansas City area, where he taught in the Park Hill School District before moving to Northeast Elementary School.

Barmann holds a master's degree in education from Northwest and a doctorate in education from the University of Northern Colorado. He has Missouri certifications in secondary administration (grades 7-12), health education (grades 7-12) and physical education (grades K-12).

"Dr. Barmann possesses an enthusiasm and appreciation for Northwest's culture that makes him the perfect person for the Northwest Kansas City Center," said Dr. Douglas Dunham, associate provost. "He has extensive experience in both K-12 and higher education, and we are delighted he has chosen to return to the University. Dr. Barmann will make an excellent ambassador for our programs."

In his role as assistant director of Northwest Outreach for the Kansas City area, Barmann will coordinate the center's programs and activities and teach courses in higher education administration.

The center's current assistant director, Dr. Melody Hubbard, is assuming a similar position at Northwest's outreach facility in St. Joseph, The Northwest St. Joseph Center, where she replaces Dr. Sandra Eckert-Stewart, who is retiring.
