The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University has experienced robust growth in recent years and continues to evolve to meet the needs of students and communities worldwide.

With this evolution in mind, the Fulton Schools has created four new associate dean positions. The roles provide capacity in key areas critical to advancing the Fulton Schools goals of inclusive excellence, growing the research enterprise, broadening access and global engagement.

“Creating these associate dean positions is a response to our growth and part of our positioning for future opportunities of strategic interest to both ASU and the Fulton Schools,” says Kyle D. Squires, dean of the Fulton Schools and ASU’s senior vice prost for engineering, computing and technology. “Through these positions, we are cultivating talent from within the community and building capacity among our talented faculty who are well positioned to step into these roles, given their institutional knowledge and experiences in many different capacities.”

One of the new associate deans is Jennifer Bekki, associate dean of inclusive excellence and an associate professor of engineering in The Polytechnic School, part of the Fulton Schools. Visar Berisha, a professor of electrical engineering with a joint appointment in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, also part of the Fulton Schools, and ASU’s College of Health Solutions is the new associate dean of research and commercialization.

Michael Goryll, an associate professor of electrical engineering in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, serves as associate dean of undergraduate programs. Teresa Wu, a professor of industrial engineering in the School of Computing and Augmented Intelligence, part of the Fulton Schools, takes on the role of associate dean of global engagement.
