Indiana University has appointed Siân Mooney as dean of the Paul H. O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Mooney is currently associate dean of interdisciplinary programs and initiatives at the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions at Arizona State University.
The appointment is pending approval from the IU Board of Trustees at its next meeting June 13-14.
"Dean Mooney has the vision and experience to advance the O’Neill School’s global reputation for excellence," IU Bloomington Provost and Executive Vice President Lauren Robel said. "Her proven ability to foster interdisciplinary research and strong administrative experiences are a perfect fit for this extraordinary and path-breaking school."
She will replace John Graham, who is stepping down after 11 years and will return to teaching and research.
The O’Neill School has 140 full-time faculty on two campuses in Bloomington and Indianapolis. Mooney’s proposed appointment would officially begin Aug. 1.
