Chris Chulos Named Liberal Arts Dean at Towson University

Chris J. Chulos has joined Towson University as the dean of the College of Liberal Arts. Chulos was the standout candidate amid an extensive national search, said Provost and Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs Melanie Perreault. Chulos joins TU from Roosevelt University, where he was the associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

“I am thrilled to be joining Towson University which distinguishes itself as a leader in 21st-century higher education,” Chulos said. “I look forward to working with the College of Liberal Arts, its faculty who are accomplished as teachers and scholars, and its talented students. What excites me most is that the College is dedicated to preparing students for 21st-century needs which includes transformative and life-long learning, dedication to diversity and inclusion, and community engagement in the greater metro area.”

As dean of the College of Liberal Arts, Chulos will oversee 40 diverse majors that provide students with unique opportunities to sharpen their critical thinking skills, learn to communicate powerfully and persuasively, acquire new learning through research and collaborate with others.

“We are very fortunate to have someone with Chris’s experience and commitment to higher education as our next dean of the College of Liberal Arts, and we look forward to his leadership of this outstanding college,” Perreault said.

WittKieffer’s Jen Pickard, Ph.D. and Lauren Stets led this search.
