The institutional research team at Mary Baldwin University has a unique composition: A member of the executive staff, a member of the faculty, and a student research assistant.
Director of Institutional Research Lewis Askegaard (left in photograph) has been at Mary Baldwin University since 1983. Before coming to Mary Baldwin, he was a public school teacher and administrator and also worked for the U.S. government in Iran for three years. His Ph.D., from the University of Virginia, is in educational research and evaluation. He is currently Dean of Institutional Research, Registrar, and Associate Dean of the College, but at times in the past he has also directed the computer center, international programs, and advising. He proudly presides over a Mary Baldwin family: his wife of 38 years, Beverly, also works for the College as the Director of the Learning Skills Center, and his son, John, is a senior social work major in the Baldwin Online and Adult Programs.
Associate Director of Institutional Research Judy L. Klein (right in photograph) is a full professor in the Mary Baldwin economics department. She has been teaching at the college since 1982, and her courses include Social Science Statistics and Advanced Data Analysis.
