Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the College of Technology at Indiana State University (ISU)!


I arrived at ISU on August 1, 2018 to serve as the ninth dean of the College of Technology (COT). As the first female and engineering Dean of the College, I am excited to lead the COT and work closely with our dedicated faculty and staff to educate the future technologists and engineers.

ISU is dedicated to teaching and the creation of knowledge while maintaining its longstanding commitment to inclusiveness, community and public service, and access to higher education. The mission of COT is to prepare students with critical thinking, creative problem solving, technical knowledge, and leadership skills that enable them with necessary tools to apply in the real world.

This is an exciting time to be part of the College of Technology at ISU as we are celebrating the 50th Year Anniversary of our College.

Whether you are an alumnus, a prospective student, a parent, or an interested industry member, I would like to connect with you, share more about what’s happening in the College, and talk about how you can be part of it.

In addition to browsing our website, please stop by the Technology Annex on campus or contact me in the Dean’s office at any time.
