Missouri State has named Barri Tinkler the interim dean for the university’s College of Education.

Tinkler, currently the associate dean, will move into the top post Jan. 3. She will replace David Hough, who retires Feb. 1.

Provost Frank Einhellig said the overlap was intentional as Tinkler is still relatively new — she was hired by MSU in mid-2019 — and Hough is wrapping up his 16th year in the leadership role. He served from 2000 to 2008 and, following a sabbatical, returned to the job in 2012.

Einhellig said Tinkler spent time in supervisory roles at other institutions prior to joining MSU. She has worked closely with Hough and been involved in the extensive college accreditation process.

“She has considerable background and experience that position her to be successful,” he said.

Hired as a professor and associate dean, Tinkler has also served as interim department head for counseling, leadership and special education since May 2020.

“Dr. Tinkler will bring a strong history of teaching and administrative experience to the College of Education,” said Einhellig, in a news release. “She will help COE continue its tradition of educating tomorrow’s teachers.”

In recent years, the college has averaged 2,100 degree-seeking students. It is ranked as one of the top teacher preparation programs in the state.

Einhellig said Tinkler communicates in a straightforward manner and her temperament matches.
