Beverly Wendland, a professor of biology, has been named dean of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences after serving as interim dean for seven months. She succeeds Katherine Newman, who left Johns Hopkins to become provost of the University of Massachusetts Amherst. A university search committee considered a list of more than 900 potential candidates before concluding that the best option was to inform Wendland that she could remove the "interim" from her title.
President Ronald J. Daniels said in a press release, "Beverly Wendland is the leader that the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences needs and deserves at this moment. Her deep passion and high aspirations for the school, her commitment to the institutional goals we all share, and her warm and collegial spirit will serve the Krieger School and our entire university enormously well in the years to come."
