Andrew M. Stott, professor of English and director of the Honors College, has been named dean for undergraduate education, effective Jan. 1.
The appointment was announced by A. Scott Weber, senior vice provost for academic affairs.
In his new role, Stott—who was named director of the Honors College and associate dean for undergraduate education earlier this year after a national search—will help articulate, shape and elevate learning for all undergraduate students at UB.
He will continue to serve as director of the Honors College.
As dean for undergraduate education, Stott will provide leadership in defining the core values that guide the UB undergraduate experience; provide direction for the future of all undergraduate curricula and policy, including general education; and increase opportunities for experiential undergraduate learning.
“Professor Stott has demonstrated a strong commitment to UB, especially focusing on the scope and quality of our undergraduate learning experience,” Weber said. “In his first year as director of the Honors College, he has provided dynamic, collaborative and effective leadership. I know that he will be a creative and effective guide for greatly enhancing undergraduate learning at UB, and I am very excited to have him in this new leadership role.”
