Promoting Faculty Excellence
The Office of the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies was formed to support the development of faculty research endeavors through the identification and facilitation of independent scholarly research and the cultivation and administration of collaborative, interdisciplinary research programs.
In 2007, Dean Lynn Crismon named Dr. Carlton Erickson, the college's first associate dean for research and graduate studies. Dr. Erickson, a professor within the Division of Pharmacology and Toxicology, also serves as the director of the Addiction Science Research and Education Center. He is one of the nation's leading experts on the physiology of drug addiction and is regularly invited to give presentations to treatment professionals, educators, social workers, law enforcement and medical personnel.
