Derek R. Lane (Ph.D., 1996, University of Oklahoma) is interim Dean in the College of Communication and Information and Associate Professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Kentucky. He has held administrative positions as Senior Associate Dean for Administrative Affairs (2013-2018), Academic Director for the Innovation Network for Entrepreneurial Thinking (2011-2014), and Associate Dean for Graduate Programs in Communication in the College (2005-2009). His research program focuses on how specific message characteristics interact with individual differences and preferences to improve sustained attitude and behavior change in instructional, organizational, health and other applied contexts. Over the past six years he has become increasingly interested in understanding how instructional messages can be used as catalysts to mitigate personal risk in crisis situations. He counts himself privileged to have worked as an integral member of several collaborative research teams that have secured more than $8.5 million in extramural funding from agencies that include the U.S. Department of Education, the National Institute of Drug Abuse, the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Center for Food Protection and Defense, and the National Science Foundation. His research appears in Communication Monographs, Journal of Applied Communication Research, Communication Education, Media Psychology, Risk Analysis, Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, Journal of Management and Strategy, Risk Management: A Journal of Risk, Crisis, and Disaster, Communication Research Reports, American Journal of Communication, International Journal of Learning in Higher Education, Educational Research, New Directions in Teaching and Learning, Journal of Research on Adolescence, Journal of Experimental Education, Health Promotion Practice and the Journal of Engineering Education. He has delivered more than 100 research presentations at state, national, and international conferences and teaches graduate seminars in instructional communication, theory construction, quantitative research methods, advanced survey research methods and interpersonal communication. Dr. Lane served as an endowed professor in the UK College of Engineering (2004-2015) and is the recipient of several prestigious teaching and research awards.
