The College of Education conducted a national search for our next Associate Dean for the College of Education. In this process, we have met with multiple candidates over this past academic year. After meeting with the candidates, reading the faculty and staff feedback, conducting reference checks, reviewing the search committee notes, and evaluating the needs of the College, I am excited to share that I have offered the position to Dr. Teshia Roby, and she has accepted.
Dr. Roby brings valuable leadership experience from her tenure at Cal Poly Pomona’s College of Education and Integrative Studies. She currently serves as the Interim Associate Dean for the College of Education. In addition to this position, she has served as the chair of the Education Department, as a faculty member on special assignment leading the 2015 University Graduation Initiative, assisted with state and national accreditation, and served on the executive board for the Ed.D. program.
Dr. Roby earned a Ph.D. in Instructional Design, a M.S. in Education with an emphasis in Instructional Design, and M.B.A. from Georgia State University. She earned her BA in Computer Science from Clemson University.
Dr. Roby shares our commitment to Just, Equitable and Inclusive Education, Community Engagement, and Technology. Her appointment began July 3, 2017.
