FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NORMAN – Noted members of the OU community Julie and Glen Krutz will move into Headington Hall later this summer as the housing center’s newest Faculty-In-Residence.

Glen Krutz, vice provost for academic initiatives, joined OU in 2002 as a faculty member in the Department of Political Science and later joined the Office of the Provost staff in 2010. He previously served as associate director of the Carl Albert Congressional Research and Studies Center. Julie Krutz serves as the coding lab manager for OU’s Center for Risk and Crisis Management. The Krutzes have been married 25 years and have three adult children, all of whom are current or former student-athletes. Their dog, Maggie, will join them on campus as the new “Headington Hound.”

“Glen Krutz is an excellent teacher and scholar who always puts students first. He is also one of the architects of OU’s program to increase student retention,” said OU President David L. Boren. “He and Julie have served the University with distinction in their respective roles. I have no doubt that they will serve as fine mentors and hosts for our students in Headington Hall.”

In their new roles as Faculty-In-Residence, the Krutzes will join the unique Headington Hall community, a state-of-the-art housing center with a significant student-athlete population. Each housing center at OU has a Faculty-In-Residence family to provide residents with a further sense of home. The families often host guest lecturers, special meals and other events for their residents.

“We both enjoy immensely working with students in our respective positions at the University of Oklahoma, and we look forward greatly to an even deeper experience with students as Faculty-In-Residence at Headington Hall,” the Krutzes said in a joint statement. “We are delighted that President Boren has given us this chance to make a difference.”

The Krutzes will succeed Kelly Damphousse, outgoing dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and his wife, Beth. The Damphousses served as Faculty-In-Residence at Headington Hall since the housing center opened in 2013.

“I thank Beth and Kelly Damphousse for their outstanding service as the first Faculty-In-Residence at Headington Hall,” Boren said. “The traditions they started and the sense of community they cultivated will endure for generations of students to come.”
