Since its creation in 2015, the Department of Interdisciplinary and Professional Studies has been a department of one faculty member and one staff member with two separate degree programs. Dr. Craig Robertson has indicated that he will step down as Department Chair at the end of his current term on July 31, 2023 and return to the Department of Psychology and Sociology. As no other faculty exist in the department to assume the role of chair, the curricula will move under the college for administration, with the current staff and faculty member remaining involved in the delivery of the two program areas. No other changes are planned at the present time.
