Associate Professor Greg Buckley was officially named Interim Dean of the ETSCPS college this morning. Buckley succeeds John Cicero who is leaving Roosevelt to become Dean of the School of Engineering, Technology and Media at National University in San Diego.
Buckley has a strong history within the college, first as an adjunct professor teaching the PLS Seminar in Natural Sciences (while he also was on staff at the Field Museum of Natural History), then joining the full-time Professional and Liberal Studies faculty in 1999. Buckley was tenured in the college in 2006, subsequently, also becoming an Associate Dean.
Last May, Buckley taught a fascinating National Parks course in the Sustainability program, which had an astounding field component: Buckley and eight students traveled to North Dakota’s Theodore Roosevelt National Park for a 9-day excursion.
