Jarrod Tudor named Interim Dean of Kent State University

ASHTABULA — Kent State University has named Jarrod Tudor, Ph.D., as interim dean and chief administrative officer of Kent State University at Geauga, located in Burton, Ohio, and the Kent State University Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg. Todd Diacon, Kent State’s senior vice president for academic affairs and provost, made the announcement today.

Tudor, an associate professor, currently serves as the 2013-2014 Provost’s Fellow and the director of Paralegal Studies. His one-year appointment begins July 1. He succeeds David Mohan, Ph.D., who is completing nearly 40 years of service to the university on June 30.

“We are very fortunate to have Jarrod at Kent State and now to have him as our interim dean of the Geauga campus,” Diacon said. “Jarrod combines nearly two decades of experience on our Stark and Kent campuses, and has also taught on our Salem and Tuscarawas campuses. In short, few people understand the Kent State University system as well as Jarrod does, and he will provide effective and meaningful leadership for Geauga.”

Tudor has been teaching courses at Kent State in the departments of Paralegal Studies, Higher Education Administration, Justice Studies, Political Science, Finance, History and Journalism for 18 years. He has been a member of the Faculty Senate and served on the executive committee for three years. Tudor also has served several years as grievance chair of the full-time, non-tenure track chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP-KSU).

He holds Master of Arts and Juris Doctor degrees from the University of Toledo, and Master of Law degrees from both Cleveland State University and the University of Akron. In addition, Tudor received a Master of Public Administration, a Master of Business Administration and a Ph.D. from Kent State.

Tudor resides in Akron, Ohio.
