Professor Daniel Gordon of the history department has been reappointed interim dean of Commonwealth Honors College, effective Sept. 1, according to Provost James V. Staros.
Gordon became interim dean last year after the death of dean Priscilla Clarkson, just days before the opening of the Commonwealth Honors College Residential Community.
“We are indebted to Dean Gordon for his leadership in making that critical first year of CHC in the CHCRC so successful,” said Staros. “I am confident that this success will carry over to the new academic year.”
Staros anticipates that incoming Provost Katherine Newman will launch a search for a permanent dean during the 2014-15 academic year.
