Dear College of Technology Faculty and Staff:
As Dean William Fitzgibbon has indicated, he is stepping down as dean of the College of Technology effective December 1, 2015. I appreciate very much all of Dr. Fitzgibbon's contributions to the University of Houston.
I have asked Dr. Neil Eldin, Chair, Department of Construction Management, to assume the position of Interim Dean effective December 1. Dr. Eldin will have full responsibilities and decision-making authority of the dean. I thank Dr. Eldin for being willing to assume this important responsibility.
I will initiate a national search for a new dean in fall 2016.
