Fr. Poorman explains that “After observing the steady, skillful hand with which she has led the College in these challenging times, and considering other factors such as continuity of leadership, stability, and institutional knowledge, we concurred that it made sense to ask her to serve for two academic years. We plan to conduct a search for a permanent CAS dean in the 2021-22 academic year.”
University president Rev. Mark L Poorman, C.S.C., and provost Herbert Medina have invited Laura McLary to extend her service as interim dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and she has accepted. McLary will now serve as interim dean through the end of the 2021-2022 academic year.
Please join me in offering congratulations, gratitude, and support to McLary as she continues to serve in this important leadership position at UP.
