Lerman Now Dean for Graduate Education:
Soon to be Vice Chancellor as well . . .


Prof. Steve Lerman has had a change of title. As of March 31, 2008, the Dean for Graduate Students (Prof. Lerman) is the Dean for Graduate Education. The office reporting to the Dean will now be known as the Office of the Dean for Graduate Education, or DGE, formerly known as the Graduate Students Office, or GSO.

According to Provost Phil Clay, these new titles do not signal any change in the breadth of involvement of the office nor in its goals. Rather, the changes are consonant with titles in sister institutions and parallel those for the Dean for Undergraduate Education and the Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Education (DUE) here at MIT.

Editor's note: In an e-mail to faculty dated May 28, 2008, Chancellor Phil Clay announced that on July 1, 2008, Dean Lerman will become the Vice Chancellor of the Institute. Lerman will serve in both capacities simultaneously, maintaining his deanship.
