To the Williams Community,

I am delighted to report that, after consulting with the Faculty
Steering Committee, I have offered the position of Dean of the
College to Karen Merrill of the History Department and she has accepted.

In addition to Karen’s distinguished work as a teacher and award-
winning scholar she has administrative experience as Director of the
Center for Environmental Studies. She also has served on the
College’s Committee on Academic Standing, the Committee on Pedagogy
and Evaluation, and the Stetson-Sawyer Planning Committee.

This was emailed to the campus today by President Schapiro.


To the Williams Community,

I am delighted to report that, after consulting with the Faculty
Steering Committee, I have offered the position of Dean of the
College to Karen Merrill of the History Department and she has accepted.

Karen will take on primary responsibility for all aspects of student
life on July 1 after Nancy Roseman’s seven years of remarkable
service as Dean. Nancy had announced earlier her intent to return to
fulltime teaching and research.

In addition to Karen’s distinguished work as a teacher and award-
winning scholar she has administrative experience as Director of the
Center for Environmental Studies. She also has served on the
College’s Committee on Academic Standing, the Committee on Pedagogy
and Evaluation, and the Stetson-Sawyer Planning Committee.

Williams is fortunate to have someone of her ability to carry on the
College’s long tradition of calling on members of the faculty to fill
senior administrative positions.

I hope you will join me in thanking Nancy and Karen for the important
work done, and yet to come, on behalf of all Williams students.

Best regards,
M. Schapiro
