On August 9, Ian Read introduced the Concentration to the new class of 2022. INTS faculty look forward to welcoming these students into their classroom and eventually working with them in advanced projects and Capstones.
The INTS faculty would like to congratulate our Capstone students among the graduating class of 2018! Our students explored a wide range of topics and conducted some impressive research- well done (and take a breath!).
INTS Professor Michael Weiner has been promoted from Assistant Dean of Faculty to Associate Dean of Faculty. He will be taking on new administrative roles and will play an integral part in shaping the policies of the Dean’s office going forward.
Beginning in the 2017-18 Academic year, Dr. Ian Read will serve as the Director of INTS. He is taking the reins from Dr. Lisa MacLeod, whose long tenure is deeply appreciated by INTS faculty and students.
Thank you Lisa, and congratulations Ian!
