Hall prepares for new academic year with new leaders, associate dean team reorganization

Josh Hall is preparing for a new academic year that will signal the official start of his deanship by strategically aligning his leadership team to provide focus to core operational areas: graduate programs, undergraduate programs, outreach and innovation and research.

Hall was announced as the next Milan Puskar Dean June 16 when Javier Reyes was named as the next provost and vice president of Academic Affairs at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Reyes begins his next chapter at UIC Aug. 16, the same day that Hall will assume his role as dean. Reyes and Hall are working closely together to ensure a smooth leadership transition.

Mountain State money moves: WVU’s Finance University spreads financial literacy statewide

MORGANTOWN, W.VA—Young people entering college or the workforce are navigating an increasingly complex economic landscape.
