Dr. Matthew Zierler, associate dean of the Honors College at Michigan State University, will be recommended as interim dean of the college, succeeding Dean Cynthia Jackson-Elmoore. Dean Jackson-Elmoore accepted the role of provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at California Polytechnic State University.

Dr. Zierler will begin serving as interim dean-designee on June 13 and will continue in that role until his appointment goes before the MSU Board of Trustees for consideration at its June 26 meeting.

“I look forward to working with the dedicated staff and faculty of the Honors College to support all of our hardworking students during this transition,” said Zierler. “The Honors College has been an important part of my MSU career, and I plan to ensure it continues to provide an important space for our students to achieve their goals.”
