Hello, FCLCA friends!  I have some exciting news to share. Effective on Friday, I will be moving to the Office of the Provost at FSU to work on accreditation and other special projects. My position is now posted on FSU’s HR website, and they hope to fill it ASAP this academic year. See details below and share with anyone who has expertise in academic support services. Terminal degree (or just about there) is going to be expected given the nature of this role working with faculty across campus. It is a great job with the best colleagues you can imagine.

Thanks – so glad to see this FCLCA organization is going strong!

The Assistant Dean will oversee a variety of academic support services and success initiatives in the Division of Undergraduate Studies, as well as collaborate with numerous campus partners to enhance the student support and engagement we offer at Florida State University (FSU).
