We begin the academic year with some new faces among senior leadership.

We welcome Sarah A. Mustillo as the I.A. O’Shaughnessy Dean of the College of Arts and Letters. Sarah is a member of our Department of Sociology and had been serving as chair of the department. We are delighted to have her in this new position.

Thomas E. Fuja, professor in and chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering, will serve as interim dean of the College of Engineering. Martijn Cremers, the Bernard J. Hank Professor of Finance, will serve as the interim dean of the Mendoza College of Business. Searches are underway for permanent deans of those two colleges.

John Gohsman is our new vice president for information technology and chief information officer. John joins us from Washington University in St. Louis where he was vice chancellor for information technology and its CIO after 30 years in information technology leadership at the University of Michigan.

With the election of Fr. Bill Lies, C.S.C., as Provincial Superior of the United States Province of the Congregation of Holy Cross, we are very pleased to welcome Fr. Gerry Olinger, C.S.C., to replace Bill as the vice president for mission engagement and church affairs. Gerry comes to us from the University of Portland in Oregon, where he served most recently as vice president for university relations, responsible for the offices of Alumni and Parent Relations, Development, Marketing, Communications, and University Events.
