Students in the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) will soon be answering to a new dean.
Eleanor Miller, dean of CAS, announced her resignation to the faculty in the form of a letter written on Dec. 21, 2010.
"I tendered my resignation last Friday, and President Fogel has accepted it. My current plan is to take a year's administrative leave and return to the faculty in January 2012," Miller's letter stated.
Miller was a finalist for the provost position, which was given to Jane Knodell, the Burlington Free Press stated.
"Asked via e-mail if her resignation had anything to do with her not being appointed provost, Miller replied: ‘Absolutely not,'" according to the Burlington Free Press.
