Academic Affairs restructuring
Academic Affairs experienced some restructuring of the academic dean areas, including a few dean area name changes:
- Foundations for Academic Success and Community Services has been disbanded, and the disciplines within have been moved to other areas.
- Human Services (HMSV) has joined the Business dean area. The dean area name has been changed to Business and Human Services.
- English-as-a-Second-Language (ESLX) and Reading and Learning Skills (RDLS) have joined the former Communications and Humanities dean area. The dean area name has been changed to English, English-as-a-Second-Language and Reading.
- Humanities (HUMS), Music (MUSC), Philosophy (PHIL) and Speech (SPCH) have joined the former Languages and Visual Arts dean area. The dean area name has been changed to Humanities and Visual Arts.
- Early Childhood Education (ECED) has joined the Social Sciences dean area.
Additional changes effective Fall 2013:
- Horticulture, Land Systems and Management (HLSM) replaces the former Horticulture (HORT).
- Design, Interactivity and Media Arts (DIMA) replaces the former Electronic Imaging and Media Arts (EIMA) and Graphic Communication Arts (GCAD).
- Emergency Medical Services program (EMSP) has been added to the Health and Public Services dean area. These courses were the emergency medical courses that were formerly a part of the Health (HLTH) discipline.
- Interdisciplinary Studies, which involves collaboration of more than one dean area, has been created. The only discipline in the area at this time is the Center for Advanced and Emerging Technology (CAET). Tom Pensabene will oversee this discipline.
