Hanrahan Appointed to Additional Interim Dean Position in A-State College of Education and Behavioral Science


JONESBORO — Dr. Susan Hanrahan, Dean of the College of Nursing and Health Professions, has been named to the additional position of Interim Dean of the College of Education and Behavioral Science at Arkansas State University.

Dr. Lynita Cooksey, Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost, said Hanrahan will succeed Dr. Thillainatarajan (Thilla) Sivakumaran, who will assume duties facilitating global initiatives in the Office of Academic Affairs.

“I appreciate Dr. Sivakumaran’s service to the college and Dean Hanrahan’s willingness to accept these additional responsibilities,” Cooksey said.

The two colleges will continue to operate autonomously, Cooksey said, and there are no plans to merge them.
