New Department Head: Howard Hamilton (Expired)

The Department of Computer Science is pleased to announce that our new department head will be Dr. Howard Hamilton, who will begin July 1, 2013.  Dr. Hamilton joined our department in 1991 and has a distinguished career here as an instructor and researcher.  Since July 2010, he has served the department from time to time in the roles of acting department head and assistant department head.

Dr. Hamilton publicly thanked the members of the department for their support.  He especially acknowledged Dr. Xue Dong Yang, the outgoing head, for mentoring him with respect to the duties of a department head in recent years.

Going forward, Dr. Hamilton sees several crucial issues: coping with reduced resources, expanding our graduate program, increasing research funding for our department, and maintaining accreditation for our undergraduate programs.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Hamilton in his new role!
