Pulat to Serve OU as Vice Provost for Faculty Development
Senior Associate Dean and Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Simin Pulat, has moved to Evans Hall to serve OU as the Vice Provost for Faculty Development. Over the past eight years, Dr. Pulat has served our OU engineering community as Associate Dean and most recently Senior Associate Dean. While continuing to be highly productive as an ISE faculty member, she has had a transformative influence on the entire CoE. She has been a most effective agent for positive change in engineering education. She has given extraordinary leadership in the engineering accreditation process and led our initiatives in experiential learning, including first and second year courses that are attracting substantial private support and national recognition. We are grateful for all she has done and for the opportunity to continue working with her in advancing the University and the College, through STEM initiatives and faculty professional development.
