Breakfast with Dean Michael Zavada of the College of Arts and Sciences
Friday, February 21, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM (EST)
South Orange Village, New Jersey
Dear Seton Hall Parent,
You are cordially invited to attend our “Breakfast with the Dean” event with Dr. Michael Zavada, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Zavada was appointed dean of the University’s oldest and largest school in 2012. He comes to Seton Hall from East Tennessee State University where he had been professor and chair of the Biological Sciences Department. There, his vast array of accomplishments included improving research output, modifying the freshman curriculum and increasing the number of majors from 325 to 500.
Prior to East Tennessee State, Dr. Zavada was a professor and chairman of the Biology Department at Providence College, Rhode Island, and served on the faculties of The University of Louisiana-Lafayette and The University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa. He received his B.S. from Arizona State University-Tempe in Botany and his M.S. from the same institution in Botany and Palynology. He earned a B.A. from the University of Connecticut-Storrs in Slavic Languages and Literature and his Ph.D. from the University Connecticut-Storrs in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
Dr. Zavada is a strong proponent of the liberal arts tradition and believes a liberal arts education prepares students for not only their career, but to also explore the world as well as their own intellect.
Please join us for breakfast on Friday, February 21 to learn more about Dr. Zavada’s vision for the College of Arts and Sciences and his plans to build on the University’s mission and its commitment to servant leadership.
It is my hope to see you there.
