PSU names new College of Technology dean

Pittsburg State University has selected Dr. Bruce D. Dallman as the next dean of the university's College of Technology. Dallman is currently associate dean and director of the Ph.D. in Technology Management program at the Indiana State University College of Technology. Dallman will assume his post at PSU in mid September.

Dr. Steve Scott, PSU vice president for academic affairs, said the university was very pleased that Dallman has accepted the challenge of leading the College of Technology.

"During his visit to our campus," Scott said, "he very quickly saw the opportunities this tremendous facility offers and he recognized the depth of the expertise held by our faculty and their commitment to our students and their success."

Scott said Dallman brings "a wealth of experience at the college level from an institution that is highly regarded nationally."

Dallman was selected following an intensive national search. Scott said the search benefited from the involvement of faculty, staff and campus leaders and also from a serious commitment of time and energy from members of the College of Technology Advisory Council. That council is made up of leaders in business and industry from across the U.S.

"When I first became interested in pursuing the dean's position at PSU, everything that I found pointed to an outstanding opportunity," Dallman said. "When I visited campus, it was even more apparent that the College of Technology has outstanding faculty, students, and programs; a level of industrial support that, in my career, I had never witnessed before; the city of Pittsburg that clearly embraces the university; and a university that truly appreciates and supports the College of Technology. It is my extreme pleasure to soon be a member of the PSU community."

Dallman received a bachelor of science degree in industrial education from Eastern Illinois University, a master of science degree in technology education from Eastern Illinois and a Ph.D. in industrial education from the University of Maryland-College Park. He has taught at Eastern Illinois University, the University of Maryland, Eastern Michigan University and Indiana State University. At Indiana State, Dallman has served as coordinator of graduate studies in the industrial professional technology program, chairman of the Department of Manufacturing and Construction Technology.
