FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – University of Arkansas Provost Ashok Saxena announced Wednesday the appointment of Donald Judges as interim vice provost for distance education and head of the Global Campus, effective July 1.

Judges has served as interim associate vice provost for distance education and second-in-command of the Global Campus since May 1, 2015. Since then, he has spent half his time working with the Global Campus and the other half teaching courses as the School of Law’s E.J. Ball Professor of Law.

“Don Judges will provide a seamless transition in leadership for the Global Campus,” Saxena said. “He has been a key part of every major decision since joining the Global Campus and looks forward to continuing its forward momentum.”

Judges will serve full-time for one year as head of the Global Campus.

The Global Campus is a support unit for online, distance and continuing education for the Fayetteville campus, including its academic units that develop online degree programs and courses.

“It is my honor to provide leadership continuity at Global Campus and assure that our services and support to the main campus remain strong and continue on a positive trajectory,” Judges said.

Judges will replace Javier Reyes, who will leave the University of Arkansas June 30 to become dean of the College of Business and Economics at West Virginia University, effective July 1. Reyes has led the Global Campus since July 1, 2012, and has served the Sam M. Walton College of Business in several capacities since 2003, including associate dean of undergraduate studies and executive education and professor of economics.
