Posted on May 11, 2016

Here are some words from Dean Joseph Rudnick:
It gives me great pleasure to inform you that Professor Jean-Luc Margot has agreed to serve as Chair of the Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences, starting July 1, 2016.

Jean-Luc brings dynamism, commitment and a sense of purpose to this most crucial position. I am confident that he will provide inspired leadership to the Department over the period of his service.

I would also like to take this opportunity to express my deep appreciation to current Chair Kevin McKeegan for the outstanding work that he has done, and will continue to do, over the four years he will have served by the end of his term. He has carried out his responsibilities with care, dedication and an unwavering sense of decency. We are all fortunate that Kevin was willing to devote the attention and the energy that the job requires.

So, thank you, Kevin, for all you’ve done and thank you, Jean-Luc, for all you will be doing.

Joseph Rudnick
Dean of Physical Sciences
