About the College of Arts and Sciences

A Message from the Dean


I am pleased to have joined the College of Arts and Sciences as dean. It is truly my privilege to be here and work along side such an enthusiastic and committed academic community.

I have two goals for my tenure here as dean. I plan to:

  1. Continue to enhance the overall student experience for all student at the University of Louisville, but most especially those who choose to major in A&S
  2. Increase faculty support and productivity

As I learn more about the College, the University, the city, the state and the region, I hope you will share with me both your achievements and your challenges. It is my job as dean to celebrate your accomplishments as well as help you overcome the obstacles. I look forward to doing both.
