Chun is the 2017-2018 Paul G. and Ernestine G. Hatcher Lecturer in the Department of Modern Languages. The annual Paul G. and Ernestine G.

Hatcher, Professor of Spanish, taught at WKU for 27 years, and served as Head of the Department of Modern Languages from 1959 to 1965.  He was the first Dean of Potter College and also the first Director of International Programs at WKU.
