Dean Hoskin To Leave UNH at End of Year

By Jody Record, Campus Journal Editor
September 26, 2007

Dean Marilyn Hoskin will step down next spring, ending her 13 years as head of the College of Liberal Arts.

A professor of political science, Hoskin came to UNH in 1995 from the University of New York, College at Buffalo, where she was dean of Natural and Social Sciences.

In a letter to the university community, Provost and executive vice president Bruce Mallory notes that, in her time at UNH, Hoskin has, among other accomplishments, led the college through significant transformations, including the transformation of major research centers and institutes, the expansion of undergraduate and graduate programs, extensive renovations of Murkland and Huddleston Halls, and the transition to a decentralized budget system.

“Dean Hoskin has been the deans’ dean for many years. She has been a close advisor to me and a leader among her colleagues on the Deans Council,” Mallory says. “Her wise counsel, understanding of the university’s mission, and ability to solve complex problems has earned her the deep respect of fellow deans, university administrators, department chairs, and faculty. These will be very big shoes to fill.”

Hoskin is the author of “New Immigrants and Democratic Society: Minority Integration in Western Democracies,” and co-author with Roberta S. Sigel of “Education for Democratic Citizenship: A Challenge for Multi-ethnic Societies and The Political Involvement of Adolescents.”

An international search for Hoskin’s replacement will be launched once a search committee is formed.
