College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences Dean John Roberts has turned in a letter of resignation to Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Paula Myrick Short. Short has accepted his resignation and Roberts’ last day is scheduled for Jan. 30.

Short will conduct a nationwide search throughout the spring semester for Roberts’ successor. Short mentioned at a Faculty senate meeting that they are not publicly considering anybody for the position as of Tuesday. An interim dean has not been named yet.

Roberts was named dean of CLASS in July 2010. Before that, Roberts was an English professor and Dean of Arts and Humanities at Ohio State University. Throughout his nearly four-year tenure, Roberts started initiatives to integrate the Houston art community with UH, including leading the UH Arts initiative and forming collaborations with the Houston Arts Alliance and the Alley Theatre.
