Last fall I asked Rob Gearhart, Associate Dean of GPS, to chair an ad hoc committee that would make recommendations regarding the decentralization of graduate program administration here at Ithaca College. The committee completed its work and made multiple recommendations that, after consultation with offices and individuals on campus, I have accepted. I want to take this opportunity to thank the members of that committee for their excellent work.  In addition to Rob Gearhart, the committee consisted of Barbara Howard (Business), Dennis Charsky (School of Communication), Dick Schissel (HSHP), David Garcia (H&S), Tom Kline (Music), and Gerard Turbide (Admissions).  Thank you all for your significant contributions to this process.

Last fall I launched a search for an Assistant Provost for Research and Graduate Studies.  That individual would have overseen the grants management process for the College and also assumed certain centralized functions related to the administration of graduate programs. Despite the excellent work of the search committee, that search failed and has now been officially closed. As a result, I am reorganizing the position and assigning the graduate administration functions to the new Special Assistant to the Provost (see related Intercom posting).
