CONTINUED GROWTH AT LMU RESULTS IN ARTS AND SCIENCES SPLIT
July 17, 2012 - The Lincoln Memorial University Paul V. Hamilton School of Arts and Sciences has been recast as two new schools. The change, which took effect on July 2, creates the Paul V. Hamilton School of Mathematics and Sciences and the School of Arts and Humanities.
Dr. Amiel Jarstfer, the former dean of the combined school, will lead the Hamilton School of Mathematics and Sciences while Dr. Martin Sellers, formerly the dean of research and service, will head the School of Arts and Humanities.
The Hamilton School of Mathematics and Sciences includes the departments of mathematics, biology, and chemistry and physics and will be housed in the nearly completed state-of-the-art Math and Science building. The School of Arts and Humanities includes the departments of English, humanities and fine arts, social sciences and social work and is housed primarily in Avery Hall.
“This is an important decision for the University. This step forward will allow more focus on academic program improvement and development and will help LMU serve its students better,” said LMU President B. James Dawson. “Both Deans have a significant record of leadership with the University. I am confident they will work together to make this change beneficial to students, faculty and the LMU community.”
