The founding director of the International Quilt Study Center and Museum has announced that she will return to a full-time faculty position at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Patricia Cox Crews says she's "always loved teaching and research and look forward to remaining a part of that."
She joined UNL as an assistant professor in August 1984. From 1995 to 1997, she led the UNL Museum Studies Program.
The museum opened in March 2008.
Crews intends to take a sabbatical during fall semester 2013 and return to full-time teaching and research in the Department of Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design for the spring semester 2014.
