Huey Copeland to Leave TGS August 2017

Modified: February 8, 2017

Dear Colleagues,

It is with mixed emotions that I inform you that Huey Copeland will step down as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, effective August 31, 2017, to return full-time to the Graduate Faculty and his duties as Associate Professor of Art History with affiliations in African-American Studies, Art Theory & Practice, and Gender and Sexuality Studies. Over the last year and a half he has been in his role at TGS, Huey has made a great impact on our community, overseeing the Progress Review process, working collaboratively with faculty to inaugurate a number of awards relevant to the graduate student population, leading the launch of our new admissions and recruitment system, and forwarding the incorporation of assessment strategies into graduate education. We will miss him at TGS, but are glad that he will be remaining at Northwestern and undertaking renewed focus on his two current book projects on the intersections of race and gender in modern and contemporary art and to working on new initiatives that productively align his academic interests and administrative capacities.
We will be conducting a search for a new Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for a September 1 start date. You may find the position description here. Interested candidates should contact me with their CVs and a brief statement of interest no later than April 1.
Please join me in wishing Huey all the best and thanking him for his work at TGS, which will continue until the new Associate Dean takes office.

Dwight A. McBride, PhD
Dean of The Graduate School & Associate Provost for Graduate Education
