Dear Colleagues,

It is with regret to announce that I have accepted the resignation of Howard Davis in his role as director of the Harold Frank Engineering Entrepreneurship Institute.

Howard has been a valuable and well respected leader in our efforts to guide and prepare our students for bright careers in the exciting and challenging world of entrepreneurship since 2013.

I respect Howard’s decision and wish him all the best in the next phase of his career, as he returns exclusively to his teaching duties in the Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering.

Voiland College will begin a search for a new director as soon as possible. Effectively immediately, Associate Dean Shelley Pressley will serve as Acting Director of the Harold Frank Engineering Entrepreneurship Institute. Feel free to contact her with questions or candidate recommendations. Shelley can be reached at, (509) 335-4653.
