Two Women Stepping Down as Deans in the Ivy League

T. Kyle Vanderlick, dean of the School of Engineering & Applied Science at Yale University, will step down at the end of the calendar year if a successor can be found by that time. She will then devote her time to teaching and research as the Thomas E. Golden Jr. Professor of Chemical and Environmental Engineering.

Peter Salovey, president of Yale University, stated that Dr. Vanderlick “has brought to life on our campus the ‘cool’ nature of engineering. Her energy and creativity are reflected in every facet of the vibrant school she has shaped and shepherded these past 10 years.”

Dr. Vanderlick holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. She earned a Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota.

Martha Minow, dean of Harvard Law School, announced that she will step down as dean at the end of the current academic year. Professor Minow has taught at Harvard Law School since 1981 and has been dean since 2009.

Professor Minow is the author or editor of several books including Between Vengeance and Forgiveness: Facing History After Genocide and Mass Violence (Beacon Press, 1998) and In Brown’s Wake: Legacies of America’s Constitutional Landmark (Oxford University Press, 2010).

Professor Minow is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Yale Law School. She also holds a master’s degree in education from Harvard University.
