Adrienne Minerick becomes Dean of the School of Technology at Michigan Tech

The Dean of the School of Technology at Michigan Technological University as of July 2018 is Dr. Adrienne Minerick.

Minerick joined the Michigan Tech faculty in 2010 and is Professor of Chemical Engineering and has served as associate dean for research and innovation in the College of Engineering and assistant to the provost for faculty development.  For several years in her faculty development role in the provost’s office she has been spearheading the AMP-UP process, ADVANCE Matrix Process for University Programs, an outgrowth of Michigan Tech’s NSF ADVANCE grant.  AMP-UP is focused on  facilitating female and under-represented STEM faculty success and retention at Michigan Tech.

Minerick’s excitement at the new position is based on her belief in the School of Technology’s potential to help students who do not mesh easily with the classic, learn-by-lecture model on which most US education is based.
