Please join us in congratulating Dr. Brian Mitchell, who has been appointed Dean-in-Residence at the National Science Foundation/Council of Graduate Schools, and will be taking an 18 month leave of absence effective February 1, 2015. A central role of this position is collaborative networking with program officers and senior administrators across NSF, with the position housed in NSF's Division of Graduate Education under the Directorate for Education and Human Resources. The Dean-in-Residence contributes significantly to planning for future NSF program activities and initiatives, and is an active participant in CGS programs. Dr. Mitchell will split his time between NSF and CGS – both in the Washington, D.C. area – but will return to Tulane periodically to meet with his students and participate in departmental activities. Be sure to let him know when you are visiting NSF; he will be happy to see you!
