Provost Brent Carbajal will be appointing an interim dean with the goal of having them appointed before the end of the year, according to Western Today.

Mallinckrodt will become a psychology faculty member at Western, according to Western Today.

No reason has yet been given for this change.

In July, the Front reported that the history department passed a resolution of no confidence in the dean’s ability to fulfill his role. The vote stemmed from concerns including a perceived lack of support for diversity in the college, among others.

This post will be updated as more information becomes available.
