Freshmen get dean

Lorraine Sterritt, Ph.D., will be the College of Arts and Sciences’ first-ever Dean of Freshmen, beginning July 1.

Sterritt, who comes here from Harvard, where she was Associate Dean of Freshmen for Academic Affairs, will be responsible for overseeing the College’s recently overhauled freshman advising system and for planning the College’s newly expanded orientation for new students.

Before her four years at Harvard, Sterritt worked with freshman and sophomores at Princeton, where she earned her doctorate in French literature.

Sterritt will teach in the Romance Languages Department in addition to carrying out her duties as Dean of Freshmen here.
