Upon the appointment of Dr. Nancy Kropf as the new dean of Perimeter College, Dr. Huanbiao Mo has been named interim dean of the Byrdine F. Lewis College of Nursing and Health Professions; effective February 1, 2019, until a national search can be conducted. Dr. Mo, a tenured full professor, is chair of the Department of Nutrition, a position he has held since arriving at Georgia State in July 2014. He has led the department in creating an online master’s degree program, starting a concentration in nutritional sciences in the Ph.D. program in chemistry, and shepherding the success of the Panther’s Pantry, a student-managed food pantry for food insecure Georgia State students.
As a result of Dr. Mo’s appointment as interim dean, Dr. Anita Nucci, associate professor, will take over the department’s leadership duties as interim chair.
Under Dean Kropf’s leadership, the Lewis College has generated significant momentum by making major progress in student success, fundraising and faculty recruitment.
