Dr. Dale Johnson, Dean of the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, will step down from his Deanship beginning July 1, 2002. After that time Dean Johnson will serve on the faculty as Professor of Education.
Dean Johnson said,"My decision is based on the recommendations of my physicians for reasons of health that can be handled now but could be aggravated by continued stress related to Deanship. This has been a difficult decision for me to reach because I have not wanted to inconvenience the talented faculty, dedicated administrators, and stellar support staff with whom I have worked. My intention, when I accepted the position, was to serve as Dean for the last five years."
Dean Johnson began his employment with ULM in August 2001
as Dean of the College of Education and Human Development. Before
coming to ULM's campus, he taught fourth graders at Homer Elementary
School. He had previously been a college professor.
