DALLAS – Retired Dallas County administrator J. Allen Clemson has joined the University of North Texas Dallas Campus staff as a special assistant to the vice chancellor, and will primarily oversee the areas of finance and administration. The interim, six-month appointment follows the death of Maxine Rogers, the Campus' first director of finance and administration, in early February.

Clemson is a graduate of UNT and served as the County Administrator for Dallas County from September 1985 to January 2009. Dallas County is the ninth largest county in the United States with over 7,000 employees and an annual operating budget of over $800 million. Clemson recently oversaw more than $150 million in construction projects. He began his service at the Campus March 2.

Stearman, presently the director of institutional effectiveness at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in Provo, Utah, has also joined the campus leadership team at the UNT Dallas Campus. Stearman, who will serve as director of transition and accreditation, has worked in multiple institutions in higher education. He was for two years the associate director of institutional planning and effectiveness at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock.

Stearman's role will encompass the areas of institutional effectiveness, accreditation (including accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), strategic planning, learning outcomes assessment, regulatory compliance and faculty training and evaluation. He will join the staff March 23.
