Dean's Welcome

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


As the first female and engineering Dean of the College, I am very excited to lead the COT and work closely with our 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 offer high demand educational programs, providing theoretical and experiential learning that ensures students career success.  There are four core values for our College; “Students,” “Academic Quality,” “Diversity,” and “Integrity, Reputation, and Professionalism.”  Our motto is “Empowering Students. Inspiring Success.
