Dr. Dana Dunn, provost and executive vice chancellor, sent this message to faculty and staff:
Following an external review of the Lloyd International Honors College, as well as an internal survey assessment of Dr. Omar Ali’s two-year service as Interim Dean, I am delighted to announce that I have removed the interim label from Dr. Ali’s title. His new appointment as Dean of the Lloyd International Honors College is effective April 1, 2017.
I am grateful to those of you who participated in the external program review and/or internal performance assessment. These evaluations confirmed that the Honors College plays a vital role in the academic experience of faculty and students at UNCG and is poised for even greater achievements under Dr. Ali’s continued leadership.
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Ali on his appointment to this important deanship.
