I am pleased to announce that Kevin Gilmartin, Professor of English, has been appointed the Dean of Undergraduate Students effective July 1, 2016. Kevin is an accomplished scholar and author who brings to this position twenty-five years of experience in teaching and mentoring our students. A recipient of Caltech's highest honor in teaching, the Feynman Prize, Kevin has shown a keen interest in the welfare of our undergraduate students in and outside of the classroom. I look forward to working with Kevin. Please join me in welcoming him to the Undergraduate Dean's office.
I thank Barbara Green for her outstanding efforts as the Interim Dean over the past year. Barbara will be returning to her regular position as Associate Dean in July. We are indebted to her for her work with our students and service to the Institute. Please join me in thanking her for being so willing and committed to the success of our undergraduate student body.
