Message from the Provost

Start Date:
2017-03-28
End Date:
2017-03-28
Headline: Message from the Provost
Description:

I'd like to announce the three new deans who will be joining our University community this summer:

 

Dr. Jeff Chamberlain will be the inaugural dean of the Hicks Honors College in August. For the past 10 years, he has served as the director of the Frederik Meijer Honors College at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan.  Previously, he was a professor of history at the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois. The current Honors Director, Dr. Jeff Michelman, will be returning to faculty with my appreciation for his work for the past several years and for his contribution in elevating the Honors Program to a college.

 

Dr. George Rainbolt has accepted the position of dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, beginning Wednesday, July 5. He comes to us from Georgia State University where he is the chair of the Department of Philosophy. Dr. Madeline Zavodny, his wife, will be joining the Coggin College of Business faculty as an economics professor. For his service as interim dean of Arts and Sciences, I thank Dr. Dan Moon, who soon will be transitioning to his new role as Associate Vice President for Budgets and Personnel for Academic Affairs.

 

Dr. Curt Lox will begin as dean of the Brooks College of Heath the end of May.  For the past two decades, he has worked at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville as a kinesiology and health education professor and as dean of the School of Education, Health and Human Behavior. Present Brooks College Dean Dr. Pam Chally is retiring at the end of March; she will return in October to serve as the University's interim provost. Dr. Cathy Christie has agreed to serve as acting dean of Brooks, to bridge the gap of time between Chally leaving and Lox starting his post. 

 

In closing, I offer my thanks to those who served on the various search committees and who took part in the interview process. I am aware that this has been a time-consuming endeavor; however, selecting the best person for each of these strategic positions is critical to the University's mission.
