Stepping down

Public health professor Elizabeth Bradley ’96PhD (left) has been named president of Vassar College. Bradley, who serves as head of Branford College, director of Yale’s Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy, and faculty director of the Global Health Leadership Institute, has been at Yale since arriving as a graduate student in 1992. She takes office at Vassar in July, succeeding Yale Corporation fellow Catharine Bond Hill ’85PhD.
Kyle Vanderlick, who oversaw the transition of Yale’s Faculty of Engineering into the School of Engineering and Applied Science, will step down as dean of the school at the end of the year. Since 2008, Vanderlick has presided over an expansion of engineering, including new faculty, new space at 17 Hillhouse, and the new Center for Engineering Innovation and Design. A chemical engineer, she will return to teaching when her term ends.
Jock Reynolds will step down as director of the Yale University Art Gallery in June 2018, at the end of his fourth five-year term. Reynolds’s tenure has seen a mammoth $135 million expansion and renovation of the gallery; the acquisition of important African, contemporary, and Indo-Pacific collections; and expanded educational programs.



Eight Yale students and recent alumni will travel to China this fall as Schwarzman Scholars: Lorem Aminathia ’15, Zahra Baitie ’15, Madeline Bauer ’17, Max Goldberg ’17, Filippos Lekkas ’14, Tonatiuh Lievano Beltran ’17GRD, Yuci Ren ’17, and Paul Wasserman ’14. Funded by Stephen Schwarzman ’69, the program sends students from around the world to Tsinghua University for a year to earn a master’s degree. In all, 129 students were chosen for the Class of 2018, the program’s second year.



Michael Levine ’65JD, dean of the School of Management from 1988 to 1992, died early this year. He was 75 years old. Levine, a former airline executive, led SOM during a stormy time, making changes that some students and alumni felt were moving the school away from its mission to train people for both for-profit and nonprofit management. Economics professor Robert Shiller told the Yale Daily News that Levine “was instrumental in changing the focus of SOM . . . into a school more directed towards preparing young people for successful careers in management.”
