The search for the position began last month and Di Mare informed the campus of her decision via email on Monday.
Mullen has been with the Mass Communication department since August 1990. Di Mare talked greatly about Mullen and some of her accomplishments as well as how they will help while Mullen is working with her.
“She has served on numerous committees, including the CSU-Pueblo President’s and CSU System Chancellor’s search committees this past year. She also has an extensive background in public relations, which will assist me greatly in the coming year,” Di Mare said in an email.
Mass Communications Department & Center for New Media professor Samuel Ebersole will take over Mullen’s position as Department Chair of Mass Communication June 1 when she begins her job alongside Di Mare.
