Dr. David Keeling, an internationally renowned expert on Argentina and global transportation issues, has been appointed a University Distinguished Professor at WKU.
Dr. Keeling is a professor of geography and has served as the head of the Department of Geography and Geology since July 2001. WKU’s Board of Regents approved the five-year appointment on July 27.
“I am honored by the appointment,” Dr. Keeling said. “I have been involved in myriad projects around the world, but without the support of my colleagues and our students all working together, this recognition would not have happened.”
Dr. Keeling has taken students on many study abroad programs to destinations across the planet such as Argentina, Australia, Tanzania, Mexico, Ecuador, Chile, United Kingdom, Turkey, Italy, Greece and France, among other locales, since 1994. For the past 15 years, Dr. Keeling has worked with the American Geographical Society as an expedition lecturer and has had the good fortune to visit over 100 countries on these expeditions. Since 2000, Dr. Keeling has served on the Board of Councilors for the Society, and he currently serves as the Editor for the Americas for the Journal of Transport Geography.
Dr. Keeling, who joined the WKU faculty in 1993, received his undergraduate degree in business from North Sydney College, and his master’s and doctoral degrees in geography from the University of Oregon.
He has published numerous papers, book chapters, and books; presented at more than 100 international, national, and regional conferences; and given more than 100 seminars and public talks around the world.
