To the Williams Community,

I am pleased to announce that Nancy Roseman, Professor of Biology, has agreed to serve as Director of the Williams-Exeter Programme at the University of Oxford for a two-year term beginning July 1, 2010.

The Director is responsible for all aspects of the programme, including the pairing of its 26 students each year with their Oxford tutors. She will bring her experience as Dean of the College and as contributor to many College committees, including the Faculty Steering Committee and the Committee on Educational Policy. As the first natural scientist to serve as Director, she also will be looking for ways to make the programme more accessible to our science majors.

She succeeds, Tom Kohut, the Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III Professor of History.

Our thanks go to them both for their willingness to serve in this role.

With regards,
Bill Wagner
Interim President
