Bronwyn Fees, associate dean and professor, has been elected to the Board of Directors for the Board on Human Sciences within the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities. The board term will last three years and begin this fall.

The Board on Human Sciences, Inc. is an association of administrators of higher education units responsible for research/discovery, extension/outreach, and teaching/learning programs in the human sciences at universities across the country. Their members are committed to a national agenda that unifies disciplines within and beyond the human sciences to enrich people’s lives.

Fees serves as the associate dean for academic affairs and is a professor of early childhood education in the College of Health and Human Sciences. In her job, she works with faculty on courses and curriculums in academic programs, academic reporting and the college's strategic plan. Fees has been recognized for her leadership as one of K-State's Women of Distinction and as a HERS Summer Institute participant in 2015.

Joining K-State in 1998, Fees was promoted to full professor in 2015 and has taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. She also has helped undergraduate and graduate students present their work at local, state, national and international conferences, and has led international study tours to China, Tanzania, Paraguay and Hungary.

She is principal investigator for Kansas Child Care Training Opportunities, a sponsored project providing professional development and technical assistance to early childhood professionals across Kansas.

In addition to campus leadership, Fees was selected as an ACE Fellow in 2020. She currently serves as chair of the Human Sciences Board in the Great Plains IDEA, chair of the Council of Administrators of Family and Consumer Sciences, and vice president (and chair-elect) for Assembly of Higher Education for the AAFCS. She is a past board member for the World Organization for Early Childhood Education-USA, a nongovernmental organization with consultative status with the U.N. and UNESCO.

Fees earned both a Bachelor and Master of Science in education, from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and doctorate in Human Development and Family Studies - child development from Iowa State University.
