HUFF TO LEAVE POST AS DEAN OF COLLEGE OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Dr. Marie Huff, dean of the College of Health and Human Services, is leaving Bowling Green State University to begin a new role as the dean of the Beaver College of Health Sciences at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, Provost Rodney Rogers announced June 28.
Huff joined BGSU in January 2014 from Western Carolina University and has seen the College of Health and Human Services through the $9.2 million renovation of its building, the creation of three new academic programs, and the integration of the Food and Nutrition program into HHS from its former home in the College of Education and Human Development. She also facilitated the creation of the Optimal Aging Institute, for which she helped secure a $1 million grant from Medical Mutual of Ohio.
Dr. Sue Houston, who retired as vice provost for academic affairs in 2014 and returned as director of institutional effectiveness in November 2016, has agreed to serve as interim dean of the College of Health and Human Services. She came to BGSU in 1991 as a faculty member in the School of Family and Consumer Sciences.
“With her broad academic and administrative experience, she will be a capable leader for the college while a national search is conducted for a new dean,” Rogers said.
