Harpur College names two associate deans| June 17, 2013
Klin, associate professor of psychology, will serve as associate dean for undergraduate studies and academic affairs. Margai, professor of geography, will serve as associate dean for graduate studies, student success and faculty development.
“We are lucky to have two highly respected researchers and teachers who are equally committed to the development of our academic community,” incoming Harpur College Dean Anne McCall said.
Margai and Klin will join Anna Addonisio, associate dean for administration, in leadership roles within Harpur College.
Klin, who received her doctorate from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, is a recipient of the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching and Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Faculty Service. She is a faculty member at the Cognitive and Psycholinguistic Sciences (CAPS) Research Center. Klin specializes in cognitive psychology and her research interests include psycholinguistics, and language comprehension and memory.
“As a former chair of one of Harpur College’s largest and most complex departments, Celia brings valuable personnel and curricular experience to the dean’s office,” McCall said. “In addition to working with many of our faculty governance bodies, Celia will support our involvement in the transdisiplinary areas of excellence (TAEs). Her sizable expertise in the natural sciences will be precious for successful hiring, and she will play a special role in the development of hiring and retention practices that support a diverse workforce.”
Margai, who received her doctorate from Kent State University, most recently served as associate dean of the Graduate School. She has been a member of the University’s Fulbright Committee and co-chaired the Student Success Road Map Team. Margai’s published scholarship focuses on environmental health hazards, environmental justice and equity, and geographies of health and health disparities.
“Florence’s career shines a spotlight on international research and teaching,” McCall said. “As we embrace our goal of increasing graduate student enrollment, Harpur will benefit greatly from experience that Florence gained in the Graduate School and as department chair. Our students will also benefit from her commitment to developing tools that will support their academic and career development. Florence will also play a lead role in faculty development efforts across Harpur College.”
