A Columbiana County resident has been named to lead Kent State University's Salem and East Liverpool campuses.

David Dees, Ph.D., of Guilford Lake, Ohio, has been selected to serve as dean and chief administrative officer of the KSU Columbiana County campuses.

Dees currently serves as interim dean of the Columbiana County campuses, a position he has held since July 1, 2016.

He will begin serving as the permanent dean on June 1, 2017.

Dees’ position reports to Nathan Ritchey, Ph.D., vice president for Kent State System Integration. 
 
Dees joined Kent State in 1991.

Prior to serving as interim dean of Kent State’s Columbiana County campuses, Dees served as director of Kent State’s Center for Teaching and Learning since 2013.
