When Grover “Cleve” Gilmore retires June 30 as dean of the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences after nearly two decades in the role, another longtime Mandel School leader will helm the school on an interim basis.
Sharon E. Milligan, associate dean for academic affairs and student services, associate professor of social work, and chair of the Master of Social Work (MSW) program, will serve as interim dean as of July 1.
“Dr. Milligan possesses a wealth of experience and knowledge, and I am confident that her expertise and years of service to the Mandel School will serve us well during this important time of transition,” Provost Ben Vinson said. “I am very much looking forward to working with her to maintain and build upon the momentum that the school has already achieved.”
