Chairs and Directors


The Chairs and Directors serve as the academic leaders and representatives of their respective units. Their responsibilities include: advancing a culture of academic excellence and distinction in teaching, scholarship and service; providing leadership for curriculum development and implementation, and the assessment of student learning; promoting research initiatives and scholarly efforts; and providing visionary leadership for strategic initiatives that further the Department/School and College strategic plans. While all Chairs and Directors report directly to the dean, the College exercises collaborative leadership through the COSM Council.
