Berwick, Lee, and Orlin Elected to FNL Editorial Board


Results of the first Institute-wide election by faculty are in, and the newly-elected members of the Faculty Newsletter Editorial Board are Prof. Robert Berwick (EECS), Assoc. Prof. Helen Elaine Lee (Writing and Humanistic Studies), and Prof. James Orlin (Sloan School).

Elections were held electronically (all faculty and professors emeriti were eligible to vote) and more than 20 percent of the eligible faculty participated. Voting took place between May 1 and May 7.

Following new procedures outlined in the Policies and Procedures of the MIT Faculty Newsletter, members of the Editorial Board are now elected by a vote of the faculty, replacing the volunteer method of member selection.

The new Board members will be officially welcomed at the FNL Editorial Board meeting later this spring.
