FEATURE PHOTO: First interview for dean of CHHS

Mark Smith (center), the associate dean of the College of Natural and Health Sciences at University of Northern Colorado, was the first to be interviewed for the position for dean of the College of Health and Human Services here on campus Monday morning in Booth Library. During the interview, Smith explained that since he does not know the community on and off campus, he was determined to meet as many people as possible and figure out the campus culture, so he can figure out the logistics of the faculty members on campus. He also spoke about what his plans were for student and faculty retention in order to grow the college over time. “We talk about faculty a lot in institutions, we do a really nice job of talking about faculty, but it’s not faculty it’s the staff too. The faculty may be here but if it wasn’t for the staff and if it wasn’t for everybody else, there isn’t a university.” Smith said during the interview.
