As many of you are aware, last year, at the initiative of the faculty in the Business and Education departments, a process was conducted, which eventually resulted in the formation of schools of Business and Education. This action was approved at the Monday, June 24, 2013 Board of Trustees meeting. Concomitantly, the Board approved the dissolution of the Department of Business and the Department of Political Science, Economics, and Philosophy, and the formation of six new departments in their stead (departments of Accounting/Finance, Marketing, Management, Economics, Political Science and Global Affairs, and Philosophy).
I wish to welcome to the administration in the area of Academic Affairs, Susan Holak (Interim Dean of the School of Business, Kenneth Gold (Interim Dean of the School of Education), and Syed Rizvi (Interim Associate Provost for Institutional Effectiveness). Brief biographies are available online.
