The Cleveland State University community learned Tuesday, Nov. 7 that Professor Cheryl Campanella Bracken, Ph.D., accepted the position of associate dean for faculty in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.

She will leave her position as a full time professor in the School of Communication where she has been a faculty member for more than 17 years.

Bracken completed her bachelor’s from Buffalo State University with a degree in broadcasting. Her interest in how media impact audiences led her to complete her master’s degree and doctorate from Temple University in Philadelphia.

She has served as the interim program director of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program.

She was the director of the Journalism and Promotional Communication division from 2010 to 2013 as well as the School of Communication’s graduate director from 2006 to 2008 and 2015 to 2016.

Bracken will primarily oversee all activities related to faculty in the CLASS as well as assisting Greg Sadlek, Ph.D., the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.

“The associate dean lays the foundation for the dean….these are the things that really impact faculty’s lives,” she said.

“Workload," she continued, "decides how many classes they teach. It’s the distribution between researcher, teaching and services.”

Bracken will officially start her duties as associate dean on Jan. 17, 2018 when she will leave the Music and Communication building and head to Rhodes Tower.
