Hi, I am Michael Weil, Associate Dean for Student Academic Affairs and Special Projects in the College of Arts and Sciences. My primary responsibilities involve working with students on issues related to their academic programs. These include such things as academic requirements, waivers or substitutions, topical minors, retention and readmission to the University. In addition to student issues I am involved in a variety of special projects within the College. For example, I lead the liberal education initiative within the college, coordinate the selection process for multidisciplinary scholarships, and deliver workshops for new faculty advisors. With respect to my academic background, I am a Professor of Biology, primarily interested in reproduction in snakes and frogs.
