Farrington to Preside at Lehigh
Dr. Gregory C. Farrington, the professor of materials science and engineering
who served as Penn's dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science
since 1990, left the University in August to become president of Lehigh
University in Bethlehem, Pa. Dr. Judith Rodin, CW'66, said that Farrington
had been a "catalyst for interdisciplinary teaching and research,"
and praised his "bold, innovative vision." A committee has been
formed to choose his successor, and Dr. Eduardo D. Glandt, the Heuer Professor
of Chemical Engineering, is serving as interim dean.
