Review Committee for GSFA Dean

President Judith Rodin and Provost Robert Barchi have announced the membership of a consultative committee to review extension of the deanship of Dr. Gary Hack, who is currently in the sixth year of his initial appointment as dean of Penn's Graduate School of Fine Arts. University policy requires that a consultative review be established to advise the President and Provost on the desirability of such an extension; in addition, each member of the standing faculty of the school will have the opportunity to give confidential advice and views to the President and Provost.

The members of this committee are:

Eduardo Glandt, Dean of SEAS, Chair
Renata Holod, Professor, History of Art, SAS
John Dixon Hunt, Professor, Landscape Architecture, GSFA
John Keene, Professor, City and Regional Planning, GSFA
Peter Knutson, M. Arch. (Class of '02)
