Dr. Masucci departs KIN for CHHS Dean’s Office Role

A message from departing chair Dr. Matthew Masucci.
I have been appointed as the Interim Associate Dean of the College of Health and Human Sciences (CHHS). While I am excited about the opportunity, I will be sad to be moving on from the role of department chair that I have held since 2014 and from the department that has been my home since 2002.
I am pleased to announce that you will be in capable hands as Dr. Tamar Semerjian has been appointed by the President as the Interim Department Chair of Kinesiology effective immediately. I have every confidence in her ability to help guide the department through this time of change and I’d like personally thank Tamar for her willingness to serve.
Related to this change, Dr. Jessica Chin will continue in her role as Associate Chair and will assume the responsibilities of Undergraduate Coordinator for the Spring semester.
Her knowledge and abilities will be a great asset to the department in this transition and I want to thank her for her willingness to take on this role.
It has been a great pleasure to work in such an amazing department and I am committed to fostering continued success in the department and college.
Best wishes for a successful semester!
