UT Tyler Welcomes Two New Deans for Fall 2014

The University of Texas at Tyler is a continuously growing family of students, professors, administrations, deans, and presidents. Like most things, employment changes, students graduate, and life moves on. For every year we see people go, however, the next year is filled with vibrant faces, ready to join the UT Tyler family. New Student Orientations are welcoming the next generation of students in as I write. However, this year at UT Tyler, we are also welcoming two new and important faculty members to our halls.


On June 10, 2014, the campus announced that we would be receiving a new dean of the College of Business and Technology. Previously, Dr. Jerry Gilley was an interim dean in the position. This year, we welcome Dr. James Lumpkin in as the dean of the college and are excited to see what he brings to the table. According to the official UT Tyler press release concerning the hiring of the new dean, Dr. Lumpkin comes to UT Tyler from Louisiana Tech and has several degrees under his belt. He received a Masters and then a Ph.D. in Business Administration. We're very excited to have him join us here on campus!

UT Tyler also announced on June 18, 2014 that we would also be welcoming in a new dean to the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. The previous dean, Dr. Linda Klotz, retired last semester and there was an interim dean for the rest of the semester, Dr. Pam Martin, who is succeeded by the new dean. His name is Dr. Yong "Tai" Wang. Dr. Yong "Tai" Wang comes to UT Tyler from Georgia State University. He has two master's degrees in biomechanics and exercise science, and also a Ph.D. in rehabilitative biomechanics. He sounds like an awesome addition to the college and the university itself! We hope these two colleges benefit from new leadership.

Change always comes in life, especially in a university. We're happy to be able to see it happening in front of us. Welcome new faculty, and new students. Can't wait to see you August 25th for the kick-off to a new school year!
