Jack Greene, longtime assistant dean in the School of Liberal Arts and more recently the School of Public Service, has announced that he will retire after Commencement exercises on July 11, 2014. Greene was instrumental in the development of the criminal justice program at Excelsior which started out with a handful of courses, six adjunct faculty members, and 35 students in 2004. Now it’s the largest degree program in the School of Public Service and includes both bachelor’s and graduate programs with more than 500 enrolled students, in addition to 800 students taking criminal justice courses and over 100 adjunct faculty.
According to Greene, “I want to take what I’ve learned and use it constructively to help others in my retirement. I plan to get active in volunteering in my church and community. Most importantly, my wife Peggy and I look forward to spending more time with our three granddaughters.”
