Robert Schalkoff selected as inaugural director of the Lincoln Scholars Program

Posted by Centre News March 7, 2016

Centre College literally searched the world for a director of its new Lincoln Scholars Program and hired an accomplished academic and administrator from Yamaguchi Prefectural University (YPU) in Japan.

Robert Schalkoff, who currently oversees YPU’s Program for the Development of Global Talent and serves as a faculty member in the Department of Intercultural Studies, will begin his new duties at Centre on July 5, 2016.

The hire matches perfectly with the nature of Centre’s newest premier scholarship program, according to President John A. Roush.

“The donors specified that this prestigious scholarship be offered to students who possess the capacity and deep desire to change the world,” Roush said, “and we are fortunate to have found in Robert someone with a truly global perspective.”

Schalkoff couldn’t be happier about his selection.

“I am grateful for the opportunity not only to become a member of the Centre community but also to engage in the rewarding activity of building a program of lasting significance at an institution I know and respect,” Schalkoff said.

“The challenge and promise of this endeavor are very exciting,” he added, “and I am prepared to devote all my energy to working with this extraordinary group of students and building the program into national prominence.”

Schalkoff brings nearly 20 years experience in higher education to this appointment, the last six of which he served as director of two university-wide programs, and more than 25 years of international experience. More…
