More Deans

Katherine Newman is the James B. Knapp Dean of the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences at John Hopkins University. In a radical move, her strategic plan is to hire younger rather than older faculty and cut graduate programs by 20-25% across the board in order to raise graduate student stipends. There is a nice article about her at:
