Glen LeRoy, dean of LTU’s College of Architecture and Design, is departing to become president of the Boston Architectural College, and on Aug. 18 friends and colleagues gathered to celebrate his 10-year tenure.
LTU President Virinder Moudgil and Provost Maria Vaz both spoke in glowing terms about the leadership that LeRoy provided in transforming COAD by adding many new programs and talented faculty members. Alumnus James Ryan, BSArE’66, listed the positive changes that took place during LeRoy’s tenure.
The University will conduct a nationwide search for a new dean, but LeRoy said a strong leadership team is in place in the interim. Associate Dean Amy Deines is now interim dean, and Scott Shall is moving from chair of the Department of Architecture to become interim associate dean. Jim Stevens takes over as interim chair of the Department of Architecture.
