Reappointment of Dean Mungal

Monday, Oct. 24, 2011

Dear Faculty and Staff,

I am pleased to announce that M. Godfrey Mungal has been reappointed to serve a second term as Dean of the School of Engineering through August 31, 2017. In his first term as dean, Godfrey strengthened the School’s academic programs, catalyzed several new research initiatives, and increased the resonance between many of the School’s endeavors and the University’s mission to improve the human condition.

I wish to thank the Dean Evaluation Committee for their thorough review of Godfrey’s performance at the end of his fourth year serving as Santa Clara’s engineering dean. Provost Dennis Jacobs met with Godfrey to discuss the findings from the evaluation committee and provide him with constructive feedback. This fall, Godfrey will be meeting with the engineering faculty to present his vision for the School’s promising future and discuss his personal goals in response to the feedback provided by the evaluation committee.

Please join me in congratulating Godfrey on his reappointment and thanking him for his inspired leadership of the School.


Michael Engh, S.J.
