Boswell Named Interim Dean of Student Affairs

Susan K. Boswell, dean of students at the Homewood campus of The Johns Hopkins University for 12 years, has been appointed interim dean of Homewood student affairs.

She will fill that role until the university hires a successor to Larry Benedict, the dean of student affairs since 1992. He left Johns Hopkins for a position at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Boswell "is intimately familiar with the needs and concerns of undergraduate and graduate students; she has their respect and the respect of the faculty," Ilene J. Busch- Vishniac, dean of the G.W.C. Whiting School of Engineering, and Richard E. McCarty, dean of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, wrote in an announcement to the campus community.

Boswell came to Johns Hopkins in 1986 as a special assistant to the dean of students and also served as director of student activities before becoming dean of students in 1988. She is a 1977 graduate of the State University of New York at Cortland and earned a doctorate in counseling psychology from Northern Arizona University in 1986.
