Slater named Dean

6/12/2013  8:00 am

I am pleased to announce that Dr. Jan Slater has agreed to serve as Dean of the College of Media through August 15, 2015.  As you know, Dr. Slater was appointed as Interim Dean of the College of Media in August 2010.  In my role as Provost, I have come to recognize Jan’s leadership and extensive contributions to the College.  She has worked diligently to improve the financial condition of the college, to develop a team of leaders with a shared vision for the future, and to improve student support services.  I have consulted with faculty and staff and have heard exceptionally strong support for Jan in her role as the leader of the College.  Based on this feedback, I decided to offer Jan a regularized appointment as Dean for a two-year period.  We will launch a national search for the position in summer 2014.  


Please join me in congratulating Jan on this appointment.
