Jasna Jovanovic Named Director of University Honors Program

June 2021

Jasna Jovanovic, professor in the Psychology and Child Development Department, has been named the new director of the University Honors Program. Her official start date in this role will be Sept. 1, 2021. Jovanovic has taught at Cal Poly since 2005 and served as department chair for the Psychology and Child Development Department from 2014-20. Among her duties in this role, Jovanovic will lead the first ever institutional review of the Honors Program. Jovanovic succeeds Gregg Fiegel, who directed the Honors Program for over seven years and has made a tremendous impact on the program and the many students who have progressed through this program. Fiegel will be returning to his home department, Civil and Environmental Engineering, on a full-time basis. The Honors Program serves approximately 450 undergraduate students from nearly 60 different degree programs and all six Cal Poly colleges. As designed, the program fosters a supportive learning community where students engage with topics related to sustainability, equity, environmental justice, research, service and leadership.
