Leadership Changes at MIT

Daniel Hastings, Dean for Undergraduate Education

Dean Daniel HastingsIn the last month or so, MIT has had a number of leadership changes. The Provost appointed a new Dean of Engineering, Prof Ian Waitz and the President appointed a new Chancellor, Prof Eric Grimson. I know both of these gentlemen well as colleagues. Ian Waitz was the Department Head of my Department, Aeronautics and Astronautics while Eric Grimson and I were colleagues together on Engineering Council when he was head of EECS and I was the head of ESD.

I can say with confidence that with this excellent leadership we have people dedicated to many of the priorities that motivate us here in DUE, namely education and the welfare of our students. I look forward to working with them as we continue to advance these priorities.
