Runyan previously served as chair of the Graduate Task Force, the Graduate Council, and the Institutional Review Board, and has taught within the current Masters of Education program.

According to Dr. Tom Cornman, academic vice president, "While the primary responsibility for each of the graduate programs will remain in the department and school within which that program is housed, Dr. Runyan will support graduate programs by developing overall strategies for their growth, working with departments to develop new graduate offerings, and ensuring that processes, policies and resources are in place to support graduate students and faculty."
