Associate Dean of Social Science at SAS: Robert DeRubeis

R. DeRubeis

The summer has brought a new associate dean of the social sciences to the School of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Robert DeRubeis, a professor of psychology, is now responsible for the departments of anthropology, criminology, economics, history and sociology of science, political science and sociology, effective July 1. He will work with the dean on priorities and long-term planning and with chairs and directors on matters of personnel, budget, space and facilities.

“It is an honor to be asked to help the social science department chairs and their colleagues in their efforts to maintain and build upon the many strengths we have in social sciences at Penn,” Dr. DeRubeis said.

Dr. DeRubeis was chair of the psychology department from 2001 until he became associate dean. He has authored or co-authored more than 75 articles and book chapters on topics that center on the treatment of depression. He received the Academy of Cognitive Therapy’s Aaron T. Beck Award in 2004 for his contributions to research on cognitive therapy. His empirical research comparing the benefits of cognitive therapy and medications for severe depression, published in the American Journal of Psychiatry and the Archives of General Psychiatry, has been the subject of media reports in The Economist, the Wall Street Journal and USA Today.

“I am delighted to have someone with Rob’s stature as a scholar and proven talents as an administrator serving in this position,” said SAS Dean Rebecca Bushnell. “He is well known for his fairness and intellectual acuity, and I am looking forward to working with him to shape the future of the social sciences in SAS.”

Dr. DeRubeis has been on the faculty since in 1983. He received his doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Minnesota under the mentorship of Steve Hollon, with whom he maintains an active collaboration. Dr. DeRubeis is the past director of clinical training in Penn’s doctoral program.
