COLLEGE NEWS HIGHLIGHTS July 2015

Dear Alumni,


It has been my honor to serve as interim dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science since January 1, 2015. On August 1, 2015, Teresa Dahlberg, Ph.D., will join the College of Engineering and Computer Science as our next dean. Having served as a dean and chief academic officer (at Cooper Union), a researcher and educator (at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte) and an industry professional (at IBM), she brings a wealth of experience that will lead our College towards great successes in the coming years.


Dean Dahlberg has expressed that in the brief time she has spent at the College, she has witnessed the strong sense of commitment and community that make us exceptional, energizing her to want to be a part of Syracuse University.


Please join me in welcoming Dean Dahlberg to the ‘Cuse community. Let us continue to work together toward our common goals of advancing the education experience of our students, elevating the impact and prominence of our research, and achieving a higher quality of life for all.


Sincerely,

Chilukuri K. Mohan
