Interim Dean

 

Cynthia Reed is currently Interim Dean for the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, following the departure of Dean Alex Hernandez in May 2022. She has served the school for over 20 years, most recently as Associate Dean for Administration at the School, working tirelessly to advance SCPS’s mission and support its students.

Among SCPS’s many accomplishments over the past few years, Reed led the early effort to launch the Masters in Public Safety, improved SCPS’s financial strength, formed numerous academic partnerships, made significant operational improvements in many departments, helped develop the School’s faculty policy and promotion process, and shepherded the School through a number of system implementations, including the on-going Workday Financials implementation.

Prior to joining SCPS, Reed spent 10 years in the University's Budget Office and previously worked in corporate accounting.
