Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

I am very pleased to announce that Dorothy L. Hodgson, currently the senior associate dean for academic affairs at Rutgers University’s School of Graduate Studies, will be joining us as our new dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

A celebrated anthropologist and academic leader, Dorothy will bring depth of experience and an entrepreneurial eye to her new role, a critical one on this campus. She begins her position on Aug. 20. Please read our official announcement about her appointment, which details her impressive background and many of her remarkable accomplishments.

I know you will join me in warmly welcoming Dorothy to Brandeis — and also in thanking Susan Birren for her many years of wonderful service as arts and sciences dean.
