Dr. Monica Holiday-Goodman, associate dean of student affairs and diversity and inclusion for the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, has been named interim dean of the college.
Holiday-Goodman’s appointment is effective July 19, following the resignation of Dr. Gary Pollack, who accepted a new opportunity as dean of the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Buffalo, part of the public State University of New York system.
Holiday-Goodman, who joined The University of Toledo in 1988, also is a professor of pharmacy practice. She sits on the President’s Committee for African American Recruitment, Retention, and Scholarship Support and serves as faculty advisor to the Student National Pharmaceutical Association.
“I want to thank Dr. Pollack for his excellent work leading the college over the past two years. We wish him well in his new role at the University of Buffalo,” said Dr. Karen Bjorkman, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. “I have every confidence that Dr. Holiday-Goodman will be excellent in this role, providing steady leadership and building on the college’s positive momentum as we search for a permanent replacement.”
