SHC Associate Dean to Leave
The beloved associate dean of the Schreyer Honors College, Dr. Ozment, will be resigning from her post at the end of the semester, after seven years of service. Students and faculty alike are upset and worried by the news, questioning if the replacement of Doc Oz (as she is affectionately known) will be able to fill her shoes.
But Dr. Oz is handling it with the class and optimism those around her would expect from such a lady, saying, “Some people are panicking, and I don’t think they need to panic…I have a lot of hope for who follows me in this role. Change is difficult, and when you get used to someone being there, it troubles people.”
Though Dr.Ozment isn’t exactly sure what lays ahead for her, she’s been looking in and outside of Penn State. If she does stay with us she may take up a seat at Penn State Abington, where she once taught chemistry.
Whatever the reason Dr.Oz is leaving, we know she will be sorely missed. Whatever the future has in store for her, we know she’ll benefit a new group students like she did here at PSU.
