April Summitt, PhD

Thursday, January 21

12:00 pm PST

Dr. Summitt is currently the Provost of La Sierra University, having moved into this leadership role July 1, 2020.  She has had a distinguished academic career serving as the Dean for General Education, and as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences in 2016.  She holds a PhD in History from Western Michigan University earned in 2002.

April Summitt grew up near the Tennessee River and has always felt a strong connection to water. As she researched her Ph.D. dissertation on U.S.-Middle East relations during the Kennedy administration, she examined the conflict over dividing the waters of the Jordan River in Palestine. Later, after moving to a position at Arizona State University, Summitt shifted her research focus to water in the American Southwest, where she studied the environmental history of the Colorado River, and American Indian history of the West in connection to water and environment.
