EP 87 | Dr. Kelly Damphousse- Chancellor of Arkansas State

September 15, 2021

There are a handful of small things to know about Arkansas State University Chancellor Kelly Damphousse.  First, the Ph.D. graduate of Texas A&M would prefer you call him Kelly, not Doctor.  Second, he lists his personal cell phone number and social media [@KDamp] on the business cards he gives everyone he meets.  Last of all, the Canadian native who was the first in his family to attend college knows first-hand the profound impact higher education can have on a lifetime.

Accessible to all, his personal touch with students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the A-State community is a Damphousse (DAM-fiss) hallmark.  His self-effacing humor and a lifetime spent relating to individuals regardless of the job led him to Jonesboro to become the third permanently appointed Chancellor of Arkansas State on July 1, 2017, the sixth to hold the title since it was instituted in 2006.  Damphousse joins the line of successors to the university’s founding leader, V. C. Kays, from 1909 as the 13th chief executive of the institution.
