BROOKINGS — For the first time in 19 years, South Dakota State University is starting a search for a new dean for the College of Nursing.
Dean Roberta Olson, a 1964 graduate of SDSU, will retire in fall 2013, depending on the timing of the transition to the new dean.
“Graduating from SDSU and then being able to return as dean of the college has been a distinct privilege to give back to South Dakota,” said Olson, a Groton native. “I started learning about nursing here and my education continues to this day. The entire state can be proud of our faculty, staff, students and graduates.”
Provost Laurie Nichols has appointed Dennis Hedge, dean of the College of Pharmacy, to lead a committee that will conduct a nationwide search for the College of Nursing’s next dean.
