Two Women Scholars Who Are Stepping Down From University Positions

Cathy Klimaszewski, associate director and the Ames Curator of Education at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, recently retired from her position. She first joined the museum in 1987 as an education assistant and became its first Ames Curator of Education in 1992. During her tenure, she created gallery and art-making experiences for local children, organized the museum’s Faculty Advisory Committee, and collaborated with various faculty on several semester-long courses.

Klimaszewski holds a bachelor of fine arts degree and a master of fine arts degree in museum studies both from Syracuse University.

Jacqueline Royster, dean of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts and the Ivan Allen Jr. Dean’s Chair in Liberal Arts and Technology at the Georgia Institute of Technology, has announced she will step down from her position on August 31, 2019. She has served as dean of the college since 2010. Under her leadership, the college has seen enrollment growth, new degree and program offerings, the creation of the Ivan Allen Jr. Prize for Social Courage, and continued growth in research centers and sponsored research.

Dr. Royster is a graduate of Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. She holds a master’s degree and doctor of arts degree both in English from the University of Michigan.
