College of IST Names New Dean

The College of Information Sciences and Technology announced yesterday that David Hall, currently serving as the college’s interim dean, has been named dean of the college. Hall has served as interim dean since January 1st of this year, having stepped in for Hank Foley, who moved to the position of vice president for research and dean of the Graduate School.

Executive vice president and provost of the University, Rod Erickson, told Penn State Live that, “in the process of searching nationally, we found that we had an outstanding leader already at the helm. Dr. Hall has done an exemplary job as interim dean. He has the right vision, values and drive to enhance the college in the years ahead.”

Hall has been with the IST since 2001, and has served as associate dean for research and graduate programs and was the founding director of the Center for Network-Centric Cognition and Information Fusion. Prior to joining the IST faculty, he headed the Information and Network Systems office within Penn State’s Applied Research Lab.

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
