Practice Professors in GSE; Other Trustee Actions
At the Stated Meeting on Friday, the Trustees approved a motion by
the Provost to establish the position of Practice Professor in the
Graduate School of Education, consistent with that position at Wharton
and the Law School. At GSE, the resolution allows for two full-time
positions. Practice professors will provide graduate instruction in
education, including supervision of internships and other field
experiences; appointments are for five years, renewable for five years,
and are without tenure or tenure-accruing status.
Finance Committee resolutions included funding for renovations to
Chemistry's Cret Building (33rd and Spruce) for the Center for Molecular
Modeling, which involves chemistry and other SAS faculty and members of
SEAS and Medicine; design fees toward the creation of the Annenberg
Public Policy Center in the Annenberg School; and renovations to create
modern laboratories for Biochemistry/Biophysics on the third floor of
AnatChem, funded at $1.53 million by the School of Medicine.
