After serving as Associate Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students for ten years, Susan Mosley-Howard will step down in Jan. 2013 to return to teaching.
Mosley-Howard will work on several research projects in the spring semester, in addition to teaching a class in the department of educational psychology and becoming familiar with her new duties as department chair for educational psychology. Mosley-Howard will return as full-time faculty at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year.
Mike Curme, associate dean and associate professor of economics in the Farmer School of Business, will serve as interim Associate Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students beginning in January.
While Mosley-Howard was not specific at about why she chose to step down as Dean of Students, she said it was not a result of poor student behavior.
“Students are a joy overall,” Mosley-Howard said. “Miami students are vibrant, engaging, [and] bring such a sense of life to the campus.”
