In July, the University named Mark Meyers dean of the newly renamed and reorganized College of Social Sciences, Health and Education. Meyers replaces Neil Heighberger, who retired after heading the college, which was formerly known as the College of Social Sciences, since its inception in 1988.
Meyers previously served for five years as the associate dean at Rowan University’s College of Education. He began at Rowan in 1996 and served as an associate professor in the department of secondary education and two years as the chair of the secondary education and foundations department.
He received his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Florida.
