Marta Kuzma (left), who currently heads the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, was recently named dean of the Yale School of Art. She will be the first woman dean in the school’s 147-year history. A native of New Jersey, Kuzma teaches art theory and has worked as a curator, writer, and educator. She will succeed Robert Storr, who is stepping down in June after ten years as dean.

School of Management dean Edward Snyder has been appointed to a second five-year term, beginning in July. This time, though, he’ll have a new title. SOM grad and former Yale trustee Indra Nooyi ’80MPPM has endowed the deanship, making Snyder the inaugural Indra K. Nooyi Dean.  

Also recently appointed to a second term is Edwin “E. C.” Schroeder, director of the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. First appointed in 2011, Schroeder has overseen the current renovation of the library and the establishment of the Windham Campbell Literature Prizes.


Five Yale students and alumni are among the first class of 111 Schwarzman Scholars—recent college graduates from around the world who will study at the newly built Schwarzman College at Tsinghua University in China this fall. The program was founded by Stephen Schwarzman ’69 as an Asian counterpart to the Rhodes Scholarship. The scholars from Yale are Kyle Hutzler ’14, Nina Russell ’15, Zahra Baitie ’15, Hui Kay Teo ’16, and Corey Meyer ’18JD.
