Weiss named next Krieger dean
Dan Weiss knows what road he wants to take as dean of the
Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. In fact, he helped
draw the map: the school’s new strategic plan.
So Weiss expects a seamless transition
when he takes over July 1 from Richard McCarty, his
predecessor as the Krieger School’s James B. Knapp Dean.
Status of Women, part two
Call it the Provost’s Committee on the Status of Women,
mach 2002. The 13-year-old advocacy group is being reconstituted,
with a new structure and leadership, to give the universitywide
committee a more independent voice and strengthen its ability to
champion the entire female community at Johns Hopkins.
Linda Fried, a professor with joint appointments
at the School of Medicine and the Bloomberg School of Public Health
and director of the Center on Aging and Health, has been appointed as
the committee’s first faculty chair and a search is currently under
way for new membership. The entity will now be known as the University
Committee on the Status of Women.
Physicists hope U.S. will host particle
A national panel of high-energy physicists, co-chaired by Jonathan
Bagger, a professor of physics in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences,
has recommended that the United States get ready to make a bid to host the
world’s next great particle collider.
The recommendation was included in a report on
the future of high-energy physics commissioned by the High Energy
Physics Advisory Panel, or HEPAP, an advisory organization for
high-energy physicists jointly sponsored by the U.S. Department
of Energy and the National Science Foundation. Bagger says the
goal of the report, "A Long-Range Plan for High-Energy Physics,"
was to create a "20-year vision for the future."
