I am very pleased to announce that Thomas Pfaff, Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics, will serve as the next director of the all-college Honors program beginning in Fall 2013.
Professor Pfaff was recommended by the Honors Steering Committee because of his record of leadership and his enthusiasm and excitement about the future direction of the Honors program. The further development of the all-college Honors program is one of the initiatives of the IC 20/20 strategic plan, and very important to the continuing intellectual vibrancy of the college. I applaud the faculty leadership, including that of current Honors director Robert Sullivan, in the development of a new model and new curriculum for our Honors program and look forward to its ongoing success. Please join me in congratulating and thanking Tom as he steps into this position.
