MUDEC leadership changes planned this summer

After eleven years as dean of the Miami University John E. Dolibois European Center (MUDEC), Thierry Leterre will be transitioning back to his role as a faculty member after his current term ends June 30. Leterre is a professor of political science.

"We thank Dr. Leterre for his lengthy leadership and celebrate all his successes," Jason Osborne, Miami’s provost and executive vice president for academic affairs, said in an announcement to faculty this week. "Eleven years as a dean is a very long time, and I know each of you will join me in wishing him well as he takes a well-earned sabbatical."

Osborne said Raymond Manes, assistant dean for admission at MUDEC, will serve as interim executive director of the center in Luxembourg from April 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021 to ensure continuity of leadership.

"Please join me in thanking him for taking on this role, and provide him support as he strives to continue building momentum for MUDEC," Osborne said. "We expect to launch an international search for a permanent executive director in the future."
