Jeff Marshall has been named acting dean of the College of Education, effective July 1.
Marshall was recently promoted as senior associate dean of research and graduate studies, after having served as associate dean in the College of Education since 2018. Prior to this he was chair of the Department of Teaching and Learning. During his time at the University, Marshall became co-founder and director for the Center for Excellence for Innovation and Science and the founder and director for Inquiry in Motion Institute, which is in its 16th year.
Marshall joined Clemson as an assistant professor in 2006 and has held teaching positions at Butler University and Indiana University. His doctorate was earned in Curriculum and Instruction with a Physics and Chemistry Emphasis from Indiana University.
Marshall led the creation of the College of Education’s online M.Ed. program – a program that has grown from 19 to more than 235 students since 2016 and that U.S. News and World Report recognized as #1 in the nation 4 out of the past 5 years.
“I am thankful we have someone with Jeff’s outstanding leadership capabilities to serve the University and the College of Education during this transition,” said Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Bob Jones.
A national search for the permanent dean will begin during the fall.
