Penn State Mont Alto announces the appointment of Dr. Michael Doncheski, professor of physics, to the position of Director of Academic Affairs (DAA).

Doncheski had served as the campus’ interim DAA since early last year when Dr. Francis Achampong left the post to go to Penn State Fayette where he is now chancellor. “Mike has served us well both as a faculty member and as our interim chief academic officer,” says Chancellor Dr. David Gnage. “We congratulate and commend him on his new post.” Doncheski obtained both his bachelor’s degree in physics and his doctorate in theoretical physics from Penn State. His primary areas of research have included elementary particle theory and the visualization of quantum mechanical phenomena.
