Dear Faculty, Staff, Students and Friends of the College,
As most of you know by now I am moving to The Ohio State University to be the Executive Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Vice Provost for Arts and Sciences, and Professor of Mathematics, effective July 1.
Steve Goddard, currently chair of the Department of Computer Science and Computer Engineering, will be the Interim Dean, starting July 1. I have had the opportunity to work closely with Steve over the last few weeks on the transition and am convinced that he will be outstanding. I will continue to make myself available to him, the rest of the Dean’s Office, and all of you to help with the change in leadership.
The past four weeks have offered me an opportunity to reflect on what we have been able to accomplish in the college over the six years that I have been dean. I want to thank you for your help in accomplishing many great things together. I am confident you will continue the wonderful trajectory the college is on.
I will be in and out of the office the next few weeks but would be happy to talk with you anytime. I will truly miss you, my friends and colleagues, and wish you the best.
