The University of New Mexico has picked longtime professor and administrator Kate Krause to head the new Honors College, according to a news release.
Krause is also dean of University College, which will eventually merge with the Honors College. The Honors College was announced this year and is still in the process of coming together.
Krause joined UNM in 1996 as an economics professor. Her appointment is for one year, and the university will launch a national search for the position within the next few months.
