According to a Friday press release, JSU has named Timothy Lindblom, head of the department of biology, as dean of the School of Science. Maureen Newton, head of the department of sociology and social work, was named dean of the School of Human Services and Social Sciences.

The new center, paid for partly with $700,000 in state money, should be fully operational in November and provide manufacturers with services from design and prototype development to research and education — all while giving training and possible job opportunities to JSU students.
