Christina Hanawalt, assistant professor of art education in the Lamar Dodd School of Art, has been elected as a division director-elect of higher education of the National Art Education Association. 

A 15-member board of directors serves as the governing authority to advance the association’s mission, determine its goals and priorities, provide strategic direction and fiduciary oversight. All positions are elected by members with the exception of the executive director.

The division directors-elect will begin their terms as elects at the conclusion of the NAEA board of directors meeting in Boston. During their terms, they will work with their respective division director in leading work related to their division. The division directors-elect will then join the board of directors as division directors at the conclusion of the NAEA board of directors meeting in 2021 in Chicago.

The mission of the NAEA is to advance visual arts education to fulfill human potential and promote global understanding. Governed by members, for members, the NAEA was founded in 1947. The NAEA is the leading professional membership organization exclusively for visual arts educators.
