Dr. Costas Tsatsoulis, vice provost of graduate education, has resigned from the position effective Thursday, June 30, to become vice chancellor of research and dean of graduate studies of Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

Tsatsoulis served as vice chancellor of research and dean of graduate studies from 2018 to 2021, when he became vice provost of graduate education to focus on S&T’s graduate programs. Tsatsoulis will continue as a tenured professor of computer science until July 31.

“Please join me in thanking Dr. Tsatsoulis for his service,” says Dr. Colin Potts, provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs. “Costas has worked continuously to advance graduate education at S&T. His leadership has been essential to the continued success of our graduate and research programs through the difficulties of the pandemic. I will deeply miss his collaboration, and I am grateful to Costas for his dedication and service to Missouri S&T.”

Prior to joining S&T, Tsatsoulis served as dean of the College of Engineering at the University of North Texas in Denton for a decade. He also served as interim dean of the Toulouse Graduate School during the 2015-16 academic year. He previously served as chair of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of Kansas. He holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Purdue University, as well as master’s and bachelor’s degrees in electrical engineering and a bachelor’s degree in German, all from Purdue.

Dr. Rainer Glaser, chair and professor of chemistry, will become interim vice provost of graduate education effective Friday, July 1. He joined Missouri S&T in August 2018. Before joining S&T, Glaser was a professor of chemistry at the University of Missouri-Columbia. “I am grateful to Rainer for taking on this new role, and I look forward to working with him,” Potts says.

An internal search for the department chair of chemistry will begin soon.
