Message sent on behalf of the Dean’s Reappointment Review Committee

Dear VSE Faculty and Staff:

We hope you have had the opportunity to review Dean Ball’s personal statement outlining key accomplishments in his role as Dean of the Volgenau School for Engineering.  As the next step in the reappointment review process, we welcome your feedback in this brief survey:

Survey link:

To ensure maximum participation, the survey will be active and available immediately through December 21, 2016.  Please note that this feedback is being collected through a non-Mason website by SurveyMonkey. When you click on the survey link you will be redirected to their website. The feedback form does not require you to enter your login credentials (netID and password) and, like all information shared with this committee, is fully confidential.

In January, the committee will arrange for an opportunity for the VSE community to meet with Dean Ball as well as offer several open meeting times for anyone who wishes to provide feedback.  More details will be provided in a later email.

Thank you for your time and attention to this important process.
