"It is with deep sadness that the College for Creative Studies announces the passing of Imre Molnar, our Provost, who died on Dec. 28, 2012 of a heart attack while bike riding in California.
Molnar served as the College’s chief academic officer for eleven years, first as Dean of the College and more recently as Provost. He oversaw the College’s faculty, curriculum, and academic resources. He led the development of new degree and educational programs and was vital in the creation of the College’s first Master of Fine Arts programs. In addition, Molnar’s experience and relationships with the global automotive industry gave him unique insights into the evolving world of automotive design and helped propel CCS’s Transportation Design degree programs to a world leadership position. He was an admired figure in the design community and a frequent speaker at design conferences and universities around the world.”
