Academic Program Coordinator
Caelee Lehman is the academic program coordinator.
Lehman provides academic support that helps the School of Applied and Interdisciplinary Studies deliver programs and services to Greater Kansas City. She facilitates the campus scholarship programs, coordinates course schedule development and manages the approval process for new or changing curriculum.
Prior to joining K-State Olathe, Lehman was the assistant director of student affairs at Research College of Nursing since December 2019. She assisted in the tracking and maintaining of all major calendar dates as a member of the calendar committee and primary event planner for the college. She also served as the lead for maintenance repairs and updates and event planning to the campus' main common spaces in the summer of 2021.
While at Research, Lehman solved one of the university's biggest academic challenges: What to do with students who failed their first semester of nursing school, as it created issues with housing, financial aid and staying connected to the college. She proposed a remedial course that helps these students learn the basics and stay enrolled and engaged with the university.
Lehman earned her B.F.A. in Career and Professional Communications from Emporia State University and her M.S. in Counseling and Student Development from K-State. She will begin coursework for her Ed.D. in Higher Education Administration at Baker University in the fall.
She joined K-State Olathe in April 2022.
