The search is finally over. After months of looking, Kent State’s Senior Vice President for academic affairs and provost, Todd Diacon announced that Amy Reynolds will be the new CCI Dean. Jake Young has the story. Jake…
In 2002 four academic programs united to establish the College of Communication and information at Kent State University.
150 of these CCI students find themselves in a classroom studying under Professor Russo every Tuesday and Thursday at 530.
For the last 7 months the College of Communication and Information has been overlooked by Interim Dean AnnMarie LeBlanc. However, change is coming. On February 12th Kent States Senior Vice President for academic affairs and provost, Todd Diacon made the announcement that Amy Reynolds will be taking over as the Dean of CCI.
Long time Academic Program Director of the CCI Commons, Marianne Warzinski is quite familiar with the day-to-day operations of the Dean.
Warzinski: “We had dean Werden and then interim dean LeBlanc, so you won’t feel it on a day to day basis but definitely our deans with support from fundraising and different projects see the big picture of the curriculum and it [attention] trickles down into our school.”
Stand Up: “On a campus that is home to nearly 30,000 students, newly hired Dean Amy Reynolds will have her hands full when dealing with students within the College of Communication and Information.”
Amy Reynolds will be taking over as the CCI Dean on July 1st and will have big shoes to fill after the efforts put up by Ann Marie LeBlanc.
The students and staff throughout the CCI eagerly anticipate Reynolds arrival to campus, to watch as she continues the line of excellence at the Dean position.
