Affirmative Action: Interim Director Arnold

On the departure of Office of Affirmative Action Director Anita Jenious last week, to return to Nashville to be near parents in ill health, Dr. Judith Rodin named as interim director Professor Howard Arnold, Associate Dean of the School of Social Work and a past chair of the University's Affirmative Action Council.

Ms. Jenious, who came her from Vanderbilt, has taken a post as affirmative action director of Tennessee State University, Dr. Rodin said. "We are sorry to lose Anita, who has served the University ably and well over the past year and a half," Dr. Rodin said.

Professor Arnold, now Emeritus Associate Professor of Social Work, is an alumnus of Penn State who took his masters degree in social work at Penn, then joined the faculty of the School in 1969. Since that time he has also served as a faculty master of the W.E.B. Du Bois College House and as a member of the Senate Executive Committee, and held numerous committee and task force roles at University and School level.

Continuing in his School role as associate dean, Professor Arnold will be in the Affirmative Action Office two days each week and will "provide invaluable guidance, oversight and support," the President said.
