Wendi B. Heinzelman, currently dean of graduate studies for Arts, Sciences, and Engineering (AS&E), and professor of electrical and computer engineering, will be the next dean of the Hajim School of Engineering & Applied Sciences. Heinzelman will be the Hajim School’s first female dean and has been appointed to a five-year term beginning July 1, 2016.
Peter Lennie, provost and Robert L. and Mary L. Sproull Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Sciences & Engineering, announced her appointment, which followed a nationwide search by a faculty committee led by Richard Waugh, professor of biomedical engineering.
“The search committee produced a short list of remarkably strong candidates, among whom Wendi stood out,” said Lennie. “As a researcher of international distinction, as an award-winning teacher, and as a proven administrator with an extraordinary talent for leading people to achieve their very best, Wendi is ideally equipped to take the Hajim School to new heights, building on the work of current Dean Rob Clark, who will succeed me as University Provost on July 1.”
