The Nicholas School of the Environment attracts not only the best and brightest students in the field to study with us, but also the most influential environmental researchers and leaders to join our faculty and help educate the next generation of leaders. This past month, several of our faculty members were either promoted or were granted tenure:
CASSAR APPOINTED ASSOCIATE DEAN, PROMOTED TO PROFESSOR
Nicolas Cassar has been appointed the Nicholas School’s Senior Associate Dean for Research and Doctoral Programs, effective March 1. This new position represents the research interests for the school and supports the dean as the chief advisor on research and doctoral student-related matters. He was also promoted to full professor. Please join us in offering him the heartiest congratulations for both of these well-deserved accomplishments.

The Division of Environmental Sciences and Policy has recommended that Deb Gallagher be promoted to full professor of the practice in environmental policy. The Nicholas School is lucky to have her given all she does for the school!
