Georgia Gwinnett College hires liberal arts dean

LAWRENCEVILLE - Georgia Gwinnett College has hired its third dean.

College officials confirmed Wednesday the college has hired a dean of liberal arts, who will start Jan. 1. The name of the new dean has not been released because she has not yet given notice to her current employer, said Jennifer Stephens, the college's spokeswoman.

Another dean is scheduled to start work at Georgia Gwinnett in January as well. Dr. Cathy Moore of Gainesville, the dean of the School of Education, will be developing the education degree program.

Moore most recently worked at Brenau University, where she guided the university's accreditation with the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and established the master of arts in teaching program.

The first dean at Georgia Gwinnett, Dr. Thomas Mundie, has worked at the college since it opened in August.

Mundie, who has 27 years of experience in research and higher education, is the dean of science and technology. His responsibilities include expanding course offerings to broaden the field of available degrees.

The college will eventually hire a dean for the nursing school, but the college is first pursuing its accreditation, Stephens said.
