Mandayam ¿Srini¿ Srinivas will remain as interim dean for the College of Science for the 2011-12 academic year, during which the university will re-open the national search for the dean position.
Srinivas stepped into the interim role July 1, 2010, after Donald Straney left to take the chancellor position at the University of Hawaii at Hilo.
“Srini has done a great job of leading the college, and I am pleased that he is willing to continue as interim dean for another year. Please join me in thanking Srini for his continued service to the college and university,” says Provost Marten denBoer.
Srinivas began his career as assistant professor of computer science
in 1988. He served as department chair from 1997 to 2006 and associate
dean of the College of Science from 2006 to 2009.
