Brooks resigns post to return to faculty
By JOANNA HOLLADAY
Wesleyan is once more under
going a drastic change as Dr.
Marshall Brooks is leaving the
post of Dean and Vice President
of Academic Affairs.
Brooks came to Wesleyan in
1978 as an associate professor of
education and served as chair for
the education department. He be
came Dean of the College in Sep
tember, 1986. After taking some
personal leave. Brooks plans to
return to the faculty in the educa
tion department.
Meanwhile, the search is on
for a new dean. Wesleyan wel
comed its first candidate. Dr.
David Lewis, on Jan. 28. Lewis
came to Wesleyan from Colgate
University in New York where he
had held numerous administrative
posts, including that of Interim
Associate Dean of the Faculty.
He has also served two terms as
Director of the Division of Natu
ral Sciences and Mathematics.
During his visit, Lewis was
able to spare some time for a brief
interview.
“It is obvious that the people
here care about the school and
that the founders cared as well,”
he said. ‘The environment is
beautiful and conducive to intel
lectual stimulation.”
As he learned more about the
college, Lewis’ impressions
changed slightly, though gradu
ally, over his two-day stay. Lewis
said he saw a great potential for
growth to which the community
, seems committed. He ccsnmented
that if the school did not have
such potential it “would be dead
ening” to him. The candidate ex
hibited strong concern for the low
level of retenticm and high level
of academic probation.
If offered the position, Lewis
said he would research the prob
lem more thoroughly before
coming to the school so he could
properly £^ply his ideas. Lewis
also wants to see more integration
among the academic, social, and
athletic parts of a student’s life,
as well as improved communica
tion throughout the community.
Neal Latta, SGA treasurer,
along with other SGA officers,
shared some time with the candi
date.
“So far he’s the one I like the
most,” Latta joked. “Seriously,
though, he struck me as taking
initiative. He was not ^ all timid.
. “EvCTyone that comes here is
going to be strong,” Latta said.
“Before Dr. Lewis left he told us
that anyone in the decision-mak-
ing process needs to keep an open
mind. Everyone was impressed.”
Wesleyan is planning to bring
two other candidates to campus.
The nextcandidale is Dr. Mai^aret
Bruijn Lacy from North Dakota
State University. An open meet
ing will be held on Monday at
10:30 a.m. in room 105. The
community is also invited to a
reception to meet and talk with
Lacy on Tuesday at 3 p.m. in the
Trustees Ro(^.
