  • The College bid farewell to a legend! Dr. Patty Tolley, PE was honored by the college for her 23 years of years of service. Dr. Tolley is the Associate Dean for the College of Engineering, a faculty member in the ETGR program and an alumnus. Dr. Tolley has successfully started and grown several key programs in the Office of Student Development and Success (OSDS) such as the FLC, MAPS, Engage ME, WE Engage and the Leadership Academy. Under her direction, both the ISL Senior Design and Professional Development programs have grown significantly! She will be missed dearly by all.  The College's OSDS faculty and staff shared a final celebration with Dr. Tolley this past December.
