Arts and Sciences Dean Matthew Moen to Depart USD
As dean of the largest college at USD, Moen led 16 academic departments, oversaw a multi-million dollar budget and helped raise more than $21 million in the current university capital campaign.

His commitment to the liberal arts has helped to make USD a stronger institution.”
“Matt has been a tremendous dean of the College of Arts & Sciences,” said USD President James W. Abbott. “He is nationally recognized with his leadership positions in the New England Political Science Association (NEPSA) and Council of Colleges of Arts & Sciences (CCAS). His new position is a wonderful opportunity that combines both his leadership talents and his passion for a liberal arts education. I wish him all the best with thanks for his contributions to USD.”
