R. Karl Rethemeyer Named Interim Dean
We are in a time of change at Rockefeller College. David Rousseau has been asked to take a temporary leave as Rockefeller's dean in order to help lead the University at Albany's effort to meet a new challenge from New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo: the establishment of the nation's first College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity, which is set to have operational programs by September 2015. James R. Stellar, UAlbany's senior vice president for academic affairs and provost, has asked me to act as interim dean of Rockefeller College during this time. I am honored to serve the College in this capacity for as long as David is needed for the new college.Click here to read the full message.
