Dean Yannis Yortsos has signed on to serve a second five-year term in his position as the head of the Viterbi School of Engineering.
Yortsos was appointed dean in 2005 by former university President Steven B. Sample. He had previously served a year as interim dean after his predecessor, current USC President C.L. Max Nikias, vacated the post to become the university’s provost.
The vetting process for Yortsos’ reappointment included a faculty survey, reviews by the USC Board of Councilors and consultations with school constituencies.
