Penn Faculty Master Title: Changing to Faculty Director

Dennis DeTurck, Stephen A. Levin Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, announced last week that the faculty and staff of the College Houses and Academic Services (CHAS) have been “mindful of ongoing developments on campuses across the country. These include concerns about the historical connotations of the title of ‘Faculty Master.’ We have now requested, and the Provost has approved, changing the title at Penn to ‘Faculty Director’ of the College House. This small but important step will be taken immediately, and over the next few weeks all references in College House literature and on CHAS websites will be amended to reflect it.”
