Please be sure to let the Dean’s office know who has signature authority and who is the emergency contact when you are on vacation.
I am happy to announce that Cheryl Brown has agreed to serve as Interim Chair of the Department of Political Science and Public Administration for a six-month period, July 1-December 31, 2018. During this time period, a search committee will be constituted to recruit a permanent chair. This will be an internal search.
Please join me in thanking Cheryl for her willingness to serve the department in this role. She brings good departmental knowledge, especially given her recent work as Undergraduate Director.
And I would be remiss if I did not also add a strong note of appreciation to Greg Weeks for his six-year service to the department as chair. He has established a collegial and effective academic community; has hired a range of faculty, from lecturer to distinguished professor; and has been a strong team player in the college leadership.
