Dec 14, 2012 by

Over the summer, the TJC School of Liberal Arts and Sciences was reorganized and divided into two schools: the School of Humanities, Communication and Fine Arts and the School of Engineering, Math and Science.

The newly established School of Humanities, Communication and Fine Arts is comprised of English, humanities, philosophy, art, dance, drama, music, foreign language, history, government, economics, geography, speech and communication.

Dr. Rosemary Reynolds-Sundet was named dean of the school in June. Sundet was previously at Blinn College, where she was the dean of institutional effectiveness and accreditation. She also has experience in institutional assessment and has served as a consultant in reaccreditation, curriculum development and multi-disciplinary curriculum development.

The newly established School of Engineering, Math and Science is comprised of engineering, physics, chemistry, geology, biology, agriculture, mathematics, psychology, sociology, social work, health and kinesiology, and the honors program.
Dr. Ken Murphy, formerly TJC chair and professor of the life sciences and agriculture program, assumed duties as dean of the school in July.

Dr. Charles Florio, who had previously served as interim academic dean, now serves as interim vice president for student affairs, replacing Dr. Johnny Moore, who was named president of his alma mater, Philander Smith College in Little Rock, Ark.

Before joining TJC, Florio retired as president of Northeast Texas Community College in Mount Pleasant.
