She will continue in her current role as dean of the Roy H. Park School of Communications through the fall semester; associate dean and professor of strategic communication Diane Gayeski will serve as interim dean for the spring semester.

Dear IC Colleagues,

Since my announcement of last week, I have received many kind notes from you and enjoyed conversations in the hallways and walkways on campus. I wish I could follow up with each of you on a personal note, but that seems impossible right now. Please know how much I appreciate your kind words and good wishes, and how I look forward to our work together this coming year. Thank you.
