Susan Mosley-Howard has been named interim dean of the College of Education, Health and Society, effective immediately upon the departure of Carine Feyten, dean of the college.
Feyten is leaving Miami July 1 to become chancellor and president of Texas Woman's University, the nation's largest university primarily for women.
Mosley-Howard, chair and professor of educational psychology, was associate vice-president for student affairs and dean of students for Miami for almost 1o years, stepping down in 2012.
In 2008, Mosley-Howard received Miami’s Distinguished Service Award, given annually to members of Miami faculty or staff who have made a significant impact on the life and mission of the university. At Miami for 29 years, she has been a leading force in structuring initiatives to enhance student life at Miami, including leadership for the Armstrong Student Center, the sophomore-year experience and the development of integrity programs.
"We are very grateful to Susan for her willingness to assume the leadership of the College of Education, Health and Society during the next academic year as we search for a permanent EHS dean," said Provost Bobby Gempesaw.
