Lane Hall, Room 120
Dean of the Faculty's Office
The responsibilities of the two associate deans vary depending on who occupies the position in any given year, but typically, each dean has responsibility for two of the divisions. Key tasks include hiring temporary faculty and supporting departments and programs within the respective division, responding to curricular or course-related concerns (e.g., over-or under-enrollment, cancelled courses, leaves), assisting with department and program reviews, meeting with students or parents who have concerns, and working closely with the appropriate division chairs. The associate deans also attend Academic Affairs Council meetings.
Áslaug Ásgeirsdóttir, of the politics department, is the associate dean for the sciences and social sciences. She also directs the faculty scholarship program and supervises the Math and Statistics Workshop. She serves on the Committee on Curricular Review.
