Carol Jordan did her BA in Theatre/Greek Studies at Earlham College in Richmond, IN and her MA in Theatre Education at Emerson College in Boston. Over the past two decades, she has taught theatre at every level from Kindergarten to college, and has held teaching certification in theatre in Kentucky, Massachusetts and Maryland. She has established numerous partnerships with local schools and arts organizations that allow WKU students to do hands-on work with young people, and she currently oversees the Theatre in Diversion program, an innovative project that provides an arts-based alternative to court for low-level juvenile offenders.  

In addition to theatre education, Carol’s areas of interest include directing and world dramatic literature. She has directed over forty shows in both professional and educational settings, and helps to oversee the department’s Children’s Theatre Series and New Works Festival. She also serves as the department’s primary advisor, and is happy to help with I-Cap reading, scheduling nightmares, and the fine art of course selection.
