Beginning with the spring 2016 semester, Tarleton-Fort Worth moves from three directors to one executive director to create a single point of contact and increase overall efficiency.
As executive director, Sudman will coordinate the nearly 40 graduate and undergraduate programs offered in Fort Worth as well as oversee services for the more than 1,700 students currently enrolled. Two of Tarleton-Fort Worth’s current directors return to teaching and the other becomes director of the university’s Midlothian campus.
Dr. Sundarrajan Sankar, director of business programs, returned to full-time teaching in September. Dr. Juanita Reyes, director of education programs, transitions to a full-time, tenure-track faculty member, and Dr. Sandi McDermott, director of health and service professions, moves to Midlothian.
“Phil Sudman’s appointment as the executive director of Tarleton-Fort Worth provides us with an experienced leader as we continue to grow our programs and prepare to build the first building on our new campus,” said President F. Dominic Dottavio. “As an experienced faculty member and department head, he will support our efforts in providing a strong student focus and a superior student experience in Fort Worth.”
Sudman has a doctorate in zoology from Texas A&M University, a master’s in biology from Fort Hays State University in Kansas and a bachelor’s in biology from Central University of Iowa.
