Posted by Marketing & Communications on November 12, 2015 in Academic Affairs Staff, Departments, New Staff Announcements

We are pleased to announce that Sandy Flash will be joining the Graduate School as a new Associate Dean, effective November 30th of this year.

Sandy is coming to the Graduate School with 22 years of service to UB. After working for two years as an advisor for international students, Sandy served for eleven years as Director of Study Abroad Programs. During that time, she coordinated administration, marketing, recruitment, advising, and admissions for more than 60 overseas programs. Under Sandy’s leadership, UB achieved study abroad participation rates that were three times the national average.

Since 2006, Sandy has served as Executive Director of Academic and Student Affairs for the School of Dental Medicine, where she has worked on new program development as well as many aspects of student services. Sandy was instrumental in designing an admissions system that enabled holistic application review to increase diversity among incoming students in Dental Medicine. She has also been a national leader in graduate admissions. For the past three years, Sandy has chaired a national task force on application services for the American Dental Education Association.

Sandy received her PhD in Comparative and Global Studies in Education from UB. She received her BA and EdM from UB as well.
