Marie Bukowski, a candidate for fine arts dean, presents her accomplishments from her time at Kent State University during a public forum for faculty, staff and students on May 3.

With the retirement of the College of Fine Arts Dean Rodney Miller, Marie Bukowski will step into the role on July 9.

The newly named fine arts dean visited campus at the beginning of May. She described her goals and ideas if named dean, most of which she said aligned with WSU’s strategic goals.

In a WSU Strategic Communications press release, Provost Shirley Lefever said Bukowski was chosen in part due to her and the school’s shared vision.

Bukowski previously taught at Kent State University, where she served as associate dean of graduate programs and faculty affairs in its College of the Arts. With nearly 30 years of teaching experience, she has taught classes, painting, lithography and design.
